CCSID is an AS/400 concept, so it looks to me like they want you to set the CCSID of the server job to 1208. That "server job" would be the job which runs on the AS/400 and receives the file transfer.
I'm not sure how your SFTP client would do that; I guess that you would have to connect to the server, then (somehow) run a command like "CHGJOB CCSID(1208)" on the server, and finally transfer the file.

This solution is perfect. We did the same thing in our as400 server. Its worked.
