· Character set translations (as specified on the Emulation tab in the Terminal Setup dialog box).

 If XmodemTranslateCharacters is set to False, carriage return/linefeed sequences may still be translated to record separator characters (if the ConvertEOLToSeparator property is set to True), and a Ctrl+Z character may still be read as an end-of-file indicator (if the ReadCtrlZAsEOF property is set to True), but no other translations are performed.


 Binary file transfer. Data in the file is not translated as it is transferred.


 File transfer type is determined by the file extension. Use these properties to determine which file extensions are linked to which transfer type:
