Defining Transfer Types

Transfer types define the option information used for controlling file transfer. Up to 32 transfer types can be defined for each host system. Text, binary, and append (excluding CICS) are the defaults.

To add or change transfer types:
  1. Click Edit → Preferences → Transfer from the session window.
  2. Click the tab for your host type or modem protocol.

    The property page for the selected host or modem protocol opens. The items that appear depend on the selected host system.

  3. Enter transfer-type names in the Transfer Type box, or select them from the drop-down list.
  4. Select or enter the required items (see Items to Be Specified).

    To add or replace a transfer type, click Save. To delete a transfer type, click Delete.

  5. A dialog box displays, asking for confirmation. Click OK.
