Mainframe File Transfer

From the Transfer Settings dialog box, you can configure global transfer setup for the current session document. Any configuration you perform is saved with your session document.

From the Transfer dialog box, you can configure and perform specific transfers. In 3270 sessions, you must be connected to a host to open the Transfer dialog box. If you frequently repeat the same transfers, use transfer request files to save specific transfer information, including which files to transfer.


Reflection uses the IND$FILE host program by default for mainframe transfers, except on double-byte systems, when APVUFILE is used. (APVUFILE is a file transfer protocol used for transfers to and from double-byte enabled IBM 3270 hosts. Configure APVUFILE transfers from the Mainframe tab of the File Transfer Settings dialog box.)
