Create a Transfer Request File

Using transfer request files, you can perform the same transfer (or transfers) again later, without having to specify files and options each time.

To create a transfer request file

  1. From the Transfer dialog box, configure and perform the transfer you want to save.

  2. Under Transfer request, click Save.

  3. In the File name box, type a filename.

  4. In the Transfer list, specify whether data is being sent to the PC from the host, or from the host to the PC.

    This setting is not saved with the transfer request file.

  5. Click Save.

    In 5250 sessions, transfer request files use the extension .XTO; in 3270 sessions, transfer request files use the extension .MTO.

NOTE:When you save a transfer request file from the Batch tab, Reflection stores the direction of transfer for each saved transfer. Therefore, you might want to use the Batch tab to save your transfer configuration, even if you have transferred only one file. When you save transfer request files from the Single tab, the direction of transfer is not included in the transfer request file.
