File Transfer Mode

Select the default file transfer mode from the following options:

ASCII

By default all files will be transferred in ASCII mode.

Binary

By default all files will be transferred in binary mode.

Auto Select

The files using a file extension specified on the ASCII Extensions list will be transferred in ASCII mode. All other files will be transferred in binary mode.

ASCII Extensions

Files using a file extension specified in the ASCII Extensions list will be transferred using ASCII mode.

New

Click the New icon (at the top right-hand side of the ASCII Extensions list) to add a new file extension to the list. The keyboard shortcut for the New icon is the Ins key.

Note that you can use wildcard characters to specify the file extensions. The ? character matches any 1 character, and the * character matches any 0 or more characters. For example htm* would match both htm and html.

Delete

Select a file extension entry from the list and click the Delete icon (at the top right-hand side of the ASCII Extensions list) to remove the extension. The keyboard shortcut for the Delete icon is the Delete key.
