Logging Tab on the Transfer Settings Dialog Box

How do I get to this dialog box?
  1. Open a VT terminal session.

  2. 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.
  3. Select the Logging tab.

From this tab, you can enable logging for file transfer actions and specify the folder where the logging file should be created and updated. The logging file is named " Transfer.log" and will automatically rename itself by appending a number to the filename; for example, when the file exceeds 64K in size, it is renamed Transfe1.log. The older transfer information is retained in this now-renamed file and the file Transfer.log continues the process of adding transfer information.
