File Transfer Considerations

ZipPrint uses the Z and I Emulator for Windows file transfer function to print VM/CMS notes and files. In order for this function to work correctly, you should use the VM/CMS host type for 3270 file transfer.

In the emulator session window, click Settings → Transfer. On the File Transfer Settings → General tab, select VM/CMS from the Host Type drop-down list.

On slow communications lines, if you are using a large packet or block size, you may experience a file transfer timeout. If you do, you should increase the timeout delay. To change the timeout delay, do the following:
  1. From the session menu, click Settings → Transfer.
  2. On the General tab, change the File Transfer Timeout to 150 seconds.
