Get file (Dataset) content from mainframe

Hi,

I have my input data for one of my service in mainframe as Dataset. To get the content, I am logging into the mainframe server using 'client.ftp:login’ service and setting the string as 'SITE LRECL=512 RECFM=FB’ in ‘client.ftp:quote’ service. Then trying to get data using the ‘client.ftp:get’ service with my dataset name as remoteFile. But I am getting ‘Dataset not found exception’. Is this the right way to get data from mainframe or any other ways to obtain the content. Any help would be much appreciated.

The steps mentioned are working fine now. The Dataset was really not there and this is because I was given information about the existance of this Dataset in our environment when I am working for another environment.
