As of April 30th, 2018, VSSI is decommissioning our old FTP server (ftp.vsoftsys.com, residing on z/VM) in favor of our existing Linux FTP server setup (ftp2.vsoftsys.com). This move enhances FTP Services. Our migration schedule is as follows.
2018-02-14 ftp.vsofsys.com deprecated; FTP banner page will indicate that users should begin using ftp2.vsoftsys.com for VSSI package/update downloads, as well as for customer data uploads (e.g., dumps, problem report data).
2018-04-30 z/VM ftp.vsoftsys.com decommissioned; all requests for ftp. and ftp2.vsoftsys.com will be redirected to our Linux server. Customers are advised to review any automated systems to ensure connectivity with ftp2.vsoftsys.com.
2018-05-02 All FTP, SFTP, and HTTPS File transfers should be directed to ftp2.vsoftsys.com. Any connections bound to ftp.vsoftsys.com will be redirected to ftp2.vsoftsys.com.
For more FTP related details check out the documentation area.
*FTP is a legacy protocol, and you need to transition towards SFTP or HTTPS! At some point in the future regular FTP access may no longer be an option.
