Using Direct TCP/IP Support

Direct TCP/IP support allows you to access host components that directly support TCP/IP. TCP/IP is frequently the fastest way to support FTP between a host and your PC.

  • You can use the Request Server Mapper for Port Settings option to allow a more flexible port number assignment to any of the individual host servers other then the Server Mapper which uses a "well-known" port number(449 TPC).
