floundering with sftp



fixed

Hi everyone
Before I forget, we are on V5r4
I have to use sftp to obtain files from another server
I have already posted a couple of questions here before, that people have been so kind to answer
Unfourtunately - I am floundering
I googled quite a few things and found this site that does part of what I need to do

http://forums.iprodeveloper.com/forums/aft/55771

titled "How to get results of LS command from SFTP" where someone posted a question that easily could have been me
Scott Klement provided examples of which I used
Here is what I have ended up with

PGM
/* To compile: */
/*> CRTPF QTEMP/LSOUTPUT RCDLEN(1000) <*/

/* FIXME: Replace the following 3 lines with the appropriate +
values for your environment */

DCL VAR(&USERID) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(15) +

OVRDBF FILE(STDOUT) TOFILE(QTEMP/LSOUTPUT)
/* CHGVAR VAR(&CMD) VALUE(&CMD *TCAT '> +

CHGVAR VAR(&CMD) VALUE(&CMD *TCAT &NULL)

DOUNTIL COND(&EOF *EQ '1')
RCVF
MONMSG MSGID(CPF0864) EXEC(CHGVAR VAR(&EOF) +

IF COND(&EOF *EQ '0') THEN(DO)

/* FIXME: The following line is for debugging purposes only. +
Replace it with one that uses &LSOUTPUT to do some +
work. */

SNDPGMMSG MSGID(CPF9897) MSGF(QCPFMSG) +
MSGDTA(&LSOUTPUT) MSGTYPE(*DIAG)
ENDDO
ENDDO

DLTOVR FILE(LSOUTPUT)

ENDPGM

I have compiled this and run it, but the file QTEMP/LSOUTPUT is empty
I have also run sftp interactively using the following commands
CALL PGM(QP2TERM)
And pressed Enter

On the
/QOpenSys/usr/bin/-sh'
Screen, I typed
sftp ftpnonprodnbtysldc
and pressed Enter

I then typed
cd DNBT2O/incoming/ATG/ESB/RequestCatalog/feed/
and pressed Enter

I then typed
Ls
And pressed Enter
And what was displayed is what I expected to see

The questions are - what is wrong with my CLP program and how can I log what happens within sftp
