    Remarks

    If you're having trouble getting a transfer to work, make sure the XfrHostSys property is set to the appropriate value.

    Example
    This sample gets a file from the host. Before you run the sample, make sure the cursor is on a TSO command line.
    void ReceiveFileTransfer()
    {
        Application app = MyReflection.ActiveApplication;
        IFrame frame = (IFrame)app.GetObject("Frame");
     
        IView view = (IView)frame.SelectedView;
     
        IIbmTerminal terminal = (IIbmTerminal)view.Control;
     
        Attachmate.Reflection.Emulation.IbmHosts.IFileTransfer fTransfer = terminal.FileTransfer;
     
        fTransfer.XfrHostSys = HostSystem.Tso;
     
        fTransfer.INDReceiveFile(@"C:\Users\Public\Documents\countReceived.txt", "count.txt", INDFileTransferType.Ascii, FileExistsOption.Append, true);
     
    }
