Zmodem Tab on the Transfer Settings Dialog Box
How do I get to this dialog box?
Open a VT 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.
From the Transfer Settings dialog box, select the Zmodem protocol.
Click the Zmodem tab.
The options are:
|Transfer type||When you perform a file transfer, it defaults to the transfer type you select from this list.|
|ASCII applies the items under Translation options for ASCII transfers (set from the Translation tab) to be applied to the file contents, as well as any character set translation that you have opted to perform.|
|Binary transfers the file contents unchanged.|
|Auto-Detect specifies to have Reflection select the transfer type for you.|
|Character set translation (ASCII)||When you perform an ASCII transfer with this option selected, Reflection translates characters based on the settings from the Translation tab of the Transfer Settings dialog box and the Emulation tab of the Terminal Setup dialog box.|
|File name translation||Select to invoke settings automatically under File name translation options on the Translation tab.|
|Packet size||Select or type the sub-packet size for file transfers. This value tells Zmodem how many bytes of data to transfer at a time. In many cases, the Zmodem protocol will adjust this value during a transfer as necessary (the value shown in this dialog box does not change).|
|Allow automatic downloading||If selected, when you initiate a send (from either a host system or bulletin board), Reflection immediately starts receiving a remote file with the same name as soon as it detects a Zmodem header. It is not necessary for the protocol to be set to Zmodem in the Transfer dialog box for this to happen.|
|Note: With automatic downloading, you are not prompted for a filename or a transfer method.|
|Delete cancelled receives||Select to have a partially received file deleted automatically if you cancel the transfer in the middle of receiving a file. (If a download stop, but you did not cancel it, the received file is always kept.|
Host system options
These startup commands are initiated from the host, which is why the term receive is used to describe the action of sending files to the host.
These settings are necessary only when transferring files to and from a host system; they are not required for transferring files to and from a bulletin board.
|Receive startup command||When you send a file, this command is transmitted to the host. Type the name of the program that starts Zmodem receives on the host. If you do not indicate a receive startup sequence, you must manually start the Zmodem receive program on the host before you can send the local file.|
|Send startup command||When you receive a file, this command, along with the name of the file to be received, is transmitted to the host. Type the name of the program that starts Zmodem sends on the host. If you do not indicate a send startup sequence, you must manually start the Zmodem send program on the host before you can receive the host file. For OpenVMS hosts, this sequence must be defined as a foreign command.|
