It's been a few years, but there is an IBM manual that explains
the MVS FTP server in excruciating detail. The MVS FTP
server is quite different from most FTP servers;  I'd suggest
that you find the manual and read it.

IIRC, what you want to do is not particularly difficult,
but it's not at all obvious if all you know is the typical
unixoid and windows FTP servers.
