FTP File Naming Rules?

» close window

The Question is:

FTP: File Naming rules
How will the FTP server respond and what rules will be applied when an
attempt is made to store a file with a non standard name.
For example if a remote Unix client where to issue:
put some.file.on.a.unix.box!.txt
Or an OS390(MVS) ftp client:
put some.MVS.file(0)
put some.MVS.file.G001V00

The Answer is :

  At present, the remote system must specify a filename that is valid
  in the target system (OpenVMS) FTP server environment, either as the
  transfer filename or as the filename to give to the file on the
  target FTP server.
