The list below describes the rules and behavior of filenames and wildcards in thedialog box for VT sessions.
In thebox, you can include a drive specifier, path name, and extension. However, the combination with filename (the path) cannot exceed 260 characters total. Local filenames are optional if you are receiving files from the host. Using the WRQ/Reflection protocol, wildcards can specify a group of PC files to send to the host.
In thebox, names must satisfy host system rules. For transfers to a VMS host, you can enter logical names. Host filenames are optional if you are sending files to the host.
Specifying a filename supersedes any settings underon the tab of the dialog box. Using the WRQ/Reflection protocol, host wildcard characters can specify a group of host files to send to the PC.
You can also put wildcard entries in the text box. The receiving-side text box must be empty (or you can specify a path); host filename switches are allowed for VMS hosts. Then, click abutton. The files are given the same names as they have on the sending end. All files transferred using wildcards use the specified values in the dialog box. Sets of ASCII and binary files should be transferred separately, or using auto-detect.
The wildcard characters you use must be recognized as such by the computer that is transferring the files. The following table lists a few of the most common wildcard characters:

PC, UNIX, VMS
When the transfer begins, the ESC, or press SPACEBAR.window opens. When transferring multiple files, this window displays the name of each file as it is being transferred; when the option is set to or there is some other error that stops the transfer, any remaining files matching a wildcard specification are not transferred. To cancel a file transfer in progress, click the button, press
