Mainframe Tab on the Transfer Settings Dialog Box
How do I get to this dialog box?
Open a 3270 terminal session and then open the Transfer Settings dialog box.
The steps depend on your user interface mode.
User Interface Mode Steps Ribbon On the Session tab, from the Transfer group, click the Transfer Settings launcher: Reflection Browser On the Reflection menu, choose Tools and then File Transfer. In the Transfer dialog box, click the Settings button. TouchUx Tap the Wrench icon and then under Tools, select File Transfer. In the Transfer dialog box, click the Settings button.
With Mainframe selected under Protocol, click the Mainframe tab.
The options are:
|Select the operating system the host is running.
|Type the name of the host program to be issued by Reflection to initiate a file transfer. The default value, IND$FILE, is appropriate for CMS and TSO hosts. For CICS hosts, IND$FILE may be appropriate, or you may need to specify your site's CICS transaction (for example, CFTR). When working with double-byte characters, use APVUFILE.
|Note: APVUFILE is a file transfer protocol used for transfers to and from double-byte enabled IBM 3270 hosts. Configure APVUFILE transfers from the Mainframe tab of the File Transfer Settings dialog box.
|Configure advanced options for the selected host system type (CICS, CMS, or TSO).
Structured field transfer
|Max field size
|Select a buffer value (other than Disabled) to have Reflection use the Write Structured Field protocol. As a rule, the larger the buffer size, the faster the transfer. However, if you select a value that is too large for your host, it will disconnect your session when you first attempt to send a file big enough to fill the buffer. This option is relevant for IND$FILE, APVUFILE, and DISOSS transfers.
Timeout (in seconds)
|Set the amount of time Reflection should wait for a host response when attempting to connect. Select a value between 1-9999.
