I'm not sure I understand exactly what the problem is. Are you trying to MPUT to the z/OS, or trying to MGET from z/OS? If you are using MPUT from your PC then you don't use MGET after MPUT. Here is an example of the commands to use after your userid / password have been entered. The PROMPT command will toggle prompting so you are not asked to verify each PDS member:
Note that the file names in /local/dir must conform to MVS PDS member name conventions.
If you are trying to do MGET from z/OS instead of MPUT from the PC, please see this past response of mine that available at the TechTarget Expert Answer Center: How can I FTP many PC files to z/OS and save them to a single PDS?
