It might be easiest to convert the file to FB with LRECL=32756 prior to the FTP. A simple REXX program could be used. For example:
/* REXX */ "ALLOC FI(VBIN) DA('my.file.VB') SHR REUSE" "ALLOC FI(FBOUT) DA('my.file.FB') SHR REUSE" "EXECIO * DISKR VBIN (FINIS" queue '' "EXECIO * DISKW FBOUT (FINIS" "FREE FI(VBIN)" "FREE FI(FBOUT)" Exit 0
If you run this in batch you can allocate the files in JCL and don't need the ALLOC / FREE in the program.
