HP Advanced File Transfer Options Dialog Box

How do I get to this dialog box?
  1. 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.
  2. From the Transfer Settings dialog box, select the WRQ/Reflection protocol.

  3. Click the WRQ tab.

  4. Under Host system options, from the System type list, choose an HP host.

  5. Click the Advanced button.

The options are:

Option Description
MPE file names Select a naming format. For more information, see the MPE File Names, WRQ protocol topic.
Send as stream Native POSIX files under version 5.0 of the MPE operating system support a new record format known as "stream," which is just a stream of bytes. Files created under the POSIX shell or by POSIX programs have this format by default. Files created from the MPE command interpreter or by MPE programs can be stream files.
Interoperability between stream files and other record formats is automatic. This means an MPE program can read from a stream file and it will appear to be a traditional variable length record file, and a POSIX program will see all files as stream files. MPE does the translation automatically.
If you want all files that you send to the host to have the stream format, select Send as stream (when you receive files from the host, the WRQ/Reflection protocol automatically detects the record format of the host file and the correct translation is performed). When this option is cleared, PCLINK2 defaults to a Fixed record format for ASCII files and a Variable record format for binary files.
QEdit format on send Select to create a host file with the QEdit format.
Send to spooled device Select to send output to a spooled device on MPE/iX machines.
Remove file extension on send Select to strip the filename extension automatically from the files you are sending to an HP 3000.
