Transfer Dialog Box
How do I get to this dialog box?
- Start Reflection and log on to the host computer as usual. The steps depend on your user interface mode.
|User Interface Mode
|The Reflection Ribbon
|On the Session tab, from the Transfer group, click File Transfer.
|The Reflection Browser
|On the Reflection menu, choose Tools and then File Transfer.
|Tap the Wrench icon and then under Tools, select File Transfer.
The options are:
|Type the path and filename of the file you want to transfer. Separate multiple filenames with commas. Standard PC wildcard characters are supported.
|Browse for the folder containing the file or files you want to transfer.
|Click a transfer button to move the file(s) in the indicated direction.
|Select how data conversion should be handled. The options available depend on the file transfer protocol. For additional information, see [IBM System i (AS/400) Transfer Method Options] and [Mainframe Transfer Method Options].
|If file exists
|Select what to do when the transferred file already exists in the target location.
|Select the record format to use for transfers to the host:
|Fixed forces the host to create fixed-length records.
|Undefined forces the host to create files without a specific record format (this value is only relevant for TSO systems).
|Variable forces the host to create variable-length records and preserve the format of a binary file.
|Default lets the host determine the record format.
|Click the Settings button, and configure the file transfer settings.
|Choose one of the following:
|Open loads transfer settings that you have saved to a transfer request file.
|Save saves your current transfer configuration to a transfer request file
|Type or select one or more host files for the transfer. Separate multiple filenames with commas.
|Show Host Files
|Click to display host files in a tree view. The display you see depends on the protocol you have selected. Reflection displays only those files that can be transferred using the currently selected transfer protocol.
|In 5250 sessions, when you click Show Host Files you are prompted for user name and password, unless you have configured these values from the AS/400 tab of the Transfer Settings dialog box.
|Show Host Files is not available if you are transferring to and from a CICS host.
|Click to refresh the file list. This button appears in place of the Show host files button after you have displayed the host files.
|Click to view an additional library (you will need to provide the library name). This button appears only if you are connected to an AS/400 host, and you have displayed the host files.
|Click to open the New Level dialog box, where you can specify the high-level qualifier or qualifiers (or filter) of the host files to display.
|Note: This button appears only if you have configured File Transfer for a TSO host and you have displayed the host files.
|If you enter a filter that is a subset of the files in the current view, only the files matching the filter are displayed. If the filter is not a subset of the files in the current view, the files matching the filter are added to the view.
