To do this

 

 

ASCII

Apply the items under Translation options for ASCII transfers (set from the Translation tab) to be applied to the file contents, as well as any character set translation that you have opted to perform.

 

 

Binary

Transfer the file contents unchanged.

 

 

Auto-Detect

Have Reflection select the transfer type for you.

 

Character set translation (ASCII)

When you perform an ASCII transfer with this option selected, Reflection translates characters based on the settings from the Translation tab of the Transfer Settings dialog box and the Emulation tab of the Terminal Setup dialog box.

 

Extensions

There are two variables to be aware of with Xmodem: The error checking (1-byte checksum or 2-byte CRC) and the packet size (128 or 1024 bytes, not including overhead). In Reflection, these work out to the following:

Xmodem

1-byte checksum, 128-byte packets

Xmodem-CRC

2-byte CRC, 128-byte packets

Xmodem-1K

2-byte CRC, 1024-byte packets

With the default Extensions option selected, Reflection automatically switches between Xmodem-CRC and Xmodem-1K on receives to match what the other system is sending.
