File Transfer Window Status Bar
The status bar is located at the bottom of the file transfer window.
When browsing through the menu options or toolbar buttons, the status
bar displays a short context-sensitive help text on the currently active
user interface element (such as toolbar button or menu item).
When the menus or toolbars are not browsed, the left side of the status
bar displays the current remote host computer (server) and the current
directory on the remote host.

The next status bar field shows the current protocol version, encryption
algorithm, MAC algorithm, and compression separated by dashes (for
ssh2 - 3des-cbc - hmac-md5 - none). Note that the status
bar displays some of the algorithm names in a longer format than the
Connection screen of the Settings dialog.
The next field of the file transfer status bar displays the number of
files and subfolders in the current folder, as well as the total size of
the files. If you select one or more files in the folder view, the field
changes to display the number of files and total file size of the current
selection. This is useful especially when estimating the amount of total
data to be transferred.
If you are connecting through a proxy, the next field of the status
bar displays an icon when the proxy is in use. Click the
field to open the Proxy page of the Settings
dialog. For more information, see Section Defining Proxy Settings.
The next field displays the SSH Accession icon. If SSH Accession Lite is
running, the icon is displayed normally, otherwise it is grayed out.
Click the SSH Accession field to open the SSH Accession page of
the Settings dialog. For more information, see Section Using SSH Accession.
If you have a smart card reader active, you should see a small card
reader icon in the last field of the status bar. When a token is
inserted, a smart card appears in the card reader in the icon. When a
key is acquired from the token, a key symbol appears on top of the card
reader icon. Click the smart card reader field to open the PKCS
#11 page of the Settings dialog. For more information, see
Section Managing PKCS #11 Providers. If the smart card reader icon
does not appear, see Section PKCS #11 Provider for
File Transfer Window Views
Local and Remote Views can display their contents in four different
ways, as defined in the global File Transfer page of the
Settings dialog. See Section Global File Transfer Settings. The available views are the following:
- Large Icons
Each file and folder has a large icon associated with it,
making for a clear and uncluttered display. The only information
displayed about each file is the icon and the file name.
- Small Icons
Each file and folder has a small icon associated with it. This makes it
possible to display several times more items than in the Large Icons
view. Only the icon and the name of each file is displayed.
Each file and folder has a small icon associated with it, and
the files and folders are displayed in a single column underneath each
other. Only the icons and the file names are displayed.
For each file and folder, an icon, file name, file size, file type,
and the last modification date are displayed. The files in the Remote
View have also their attributes visible. This is the default view.
By clicking on the Name, Size, Type,
Modified or Attributes sort bars located at the top of
the directory listing, you can sort the files and folders based on their
file name, file size, file type, the time they were last modified, and
file attributes. Clicking the same sort option again reverses the
Note: The sorting function is not case-sensitive - uppercase
text is sorted together with lowercase text.
The following information is displayed in each column:
The file name of each file. Note that the local and
remote file systems limit what file names are acceptable on which
computer. (For example, Unix file names are case-sensitive while Windows
file names are not. Thus a Unix directory can contain both
file.txt, but a Windows directory
The size of each file, shown in bytes.
The type of each file is based on the file extension. The descpription
given in the Type field is based on the file types recognized by Windows
Explorer. If you have defined a new file type description for files with
a certain file name extension, the files on the remote computer are also
shown to be of that file type. This makes it easy to recognize
particular file types also on the remote computer.
The last time when a file was changed.
The attributes of each file.
On Windows systems, the file may have the following attributes:
On Unix systems, the attributes signify the file permissions given to each file:
The entry is a directory.
The file can be read.
The file can be written to.
The file can be executed.
d attribute, the
attributes may be repeated up to three times. If the file does not have
a particular attribute, the attribute is replaced with a hyphen (
The first three attributes specify the permissions given to the owner of
the file, the second triplet specifies the permissions for the user
group associated with the file, and the last triplet specifies the
permissions given to all other users. For more information on file
permissions, please consult the server documentation.
