Need some clarification.
Who is the client? For example, if you are running the ftp command from
IBM i then IBM i is the client. However, if you are running ftp from a PC
or something else then that is the client.
So, if IBM i is the client then locsite namefmt 1 is correct. Otherwise,
locsite is all wrong.
Are you sending this from one IBM i to another? If so, then do not use
locsite. Instead just use namefmt 1.
