Getting there

File transfer templates are available when the transfer protocol is set to Mainframe. These templates define a set of conditions that affect the way Reflection names files transferred between your Windows computer and a host. Unlike transfer request files, which are used to transfer the same file or set of files between your computer and a host, file transfer templates affect the how all files transferred between your computer and the host are named. You can create multiple conditions for Reflection to step through until it finds the first one that is applicable.

With file transfer templates, for example, you can send all local files with the extension .EXE to the host, and give them the extension .EXEC.
