Managing Templates

A template is a set of rules to be used by the workstation to automatically generate a workstation or host file name and transfer type when you specify a file to be sent or received.

You can have up to 32 templates. They are automatically numbered from 1 to 32.

When you specify a file to be transferred, the workstation scans the templates, starting from template 1. It uses the first matching template to generate a name for the transferred file and the transfer type.

To manage a template:
  1. Click Receive File from Host from the Actions menu or Send File to Host from the Actions menu of the session window; or click the Send or Receive buttons on the tool bar.

    The Send File to Host or Receive File from Host window opens.

  2. Select Template.

    The Template window opens. The contents of the window depend on the connected host system.
