Templates Tab on the Transfer Settings Dialog Box

How do I get to this dialog box?
  1. 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.
  2. With Mainframe selected under Protocol, select the Templates tab.

File transfer templates are available when the transfer protocol is set to Mainframe. These templates define a set of conditions that affect the way Reflection names files transferred between your Windows computer and a host. Unlike transfer request files, which are used to transfer the same file or set of files between your computer and a host, file transfer templates affect the how all files transferred between your computer and the host are named. You can create multiple conditions for Reflection to step through until it finds the first one that is applicable.

With file transfer templates, for example, you can send all local files with the extension .EXE to the host, and give them the extension .EXEC.

Option Description
Activate transfer templates Select to enable file transfer templates for all files transferred to or received from the host. When selected, Reflection steps through the list of file transfer templates to find a matching condition each time you transfer a file to or from the host.
