Hello AndreasLandgraf,

There are solutions to work around the various behaviors you report:

So for me the perfect solution would be to COMPLETELY get rid of ASCII mode. Even the popup, whether I would want to use ASCII or BINARY for an unknown file type is a mess, since it stops the transfer at file #1234 out of 9876 and makes it impossible to transfer bigger directories unattended.
  • Set Default transfer type to Binary in the File Transfer category of SecureFX's Global Options

Unfortunately there are several hundreds of file associations in SecureFX, which may spoil txt, html and many other types. There is no way to set them ALL to BINARY, instead I would have to edit them one by one. On my PC at work, on the PC at my home office and on my netbook.
  • With SecureFX closed, edit the FileTypes.ini, removing all but one entry. This will clear the list shown in the File Transfer / File Types category of Global Options

FileTypes.ini is found in the config folder. The location of the configuration folder is found in the General category of SecureFX's Global Options.

Additionally, I have added this thread to a feature request in our development database for a Global Option to specify binary or ASCII transfer for every file type. Should a future release of SecureFX include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #9018" in the subject line.
