ASCII mode

Use ASCII mode to transfer text files (e. g., .txt, .html, .htm, .cgi). The end-of-line character depends on the computer configuration. Use ASCII mode to ensure end-of-line characters are decoded correctly.

Under Options/File types, you can specify file extensions to define which files are to be treated as ASCII files.

TIP: If you are sure that the local and remote systems are using the same operating system, you can disregard ASCII mode and always transfer in binary mode.

CAUTION: Transferring a binary file in ASCII mode may damage the file.
