FTP Settings

In this tab you can select the files types that will be treated as ASCII, when using the FTP related actions that include the "Transfer Type" input Option.

When working with FTP, downloaded and uploaded files always come as ASCII or binary. Here, you can select which files will be transferred as ASCII - the rest will default to binary. Just enter the file extension you wish to add and click Add File Type, or Remove any File Type you don't wish to have on the list.

When downloading or uploading files (using the Download File(s) from FTP and Upload File(s) to FTP actions) you can specify the transfer type to be ASCII, BINARY or AUTO. If you select AUTO, WinAutomation will use this list to determine whether the file will be transferred in ASCII or binary mode.

This list is also used by the Download Folder(s) from FTP and Upload Folder(s) to FTP actions for deciding how to transfer the files contained into the folders.
