General Tab on the Transfer Settings Dialog Box
How do I get to this dialog box?
Open a VT terminal session.
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: Classic or Classic MDI On the Tools menu, choose Transfer File. Then, in the Transfer dialog box, click the Settings button. Reflection Browser On the Reflection menu, choose Tools and then File Transfer. In the Transfer dialog box, click the Settings button.
Select the General tab.
The options are:
|If file exists||Select a default for the If file exists setting on the Transfer dialog box. For more information, see the Transferring Existing Files topic.|
|Start timeout||Set the maximum amount of time that Reflection should wait for a response from the host when starting a file transfer. If there is no response within the timeout period, an error message is displayed.|
|Receive timeout||Set the maximum amount of time that Reflection should wait for a block of data or an acknowledgment from the host when transferring a file. If there is no response within the timeout period, it is assumed that the data is lost and Reflection requests that it be sent again. Consecutive timeouts can cause termination of the file transfer (see Error retry limit).|
|Error retry limit||Set the number of times Reflection should try to transfer a block of data before abandoning the transfer.|
Transfer dialog options
|Show record size on File Transfer dialog box||(Applies only to the WRQ/Reflection protocol.) Select to display the Host record size box (located on the WRQ tab of the Transfer Settings dialog box, where it is labelled Record size) on the Transfer dialog box. This is convenient if you change the host record size often, and don't want to go to the Transfer Settings dialog box every time you need to change it.|
|Auto refresh host directory||Update the host directory display in the Transfer dialog box after you've sent a file. If you perform a large number of transfers, keeping this check box selected is not recommended because of the time it may require (depending on the number of files in the host directory) to query the host and then update this listing.|
|Display 8.3 filenames as||Select how you want filenames conforming to the DOS 8.3 file naming convention to display under Local in the Transfer dialog box.|
|This option applies at all times when you use theWRQ/Reflection protocol, and also to Zmodem, XModem, Kermit, and FTP when the File name translation check box is selected on those protocol tabs in the Transfer Settings dialog box.|
|The default folder in which received files should be placed||By default, Reflection specifies a folder associated with the current user. However, you can choose a different location. Type the full path, or use the Browse button.|
