Record a Script

Use the FTP Client script recorder to record actions as commands—you do not have to do any writing or programming to create a script that can be played back later. Scripts can automate many sorts of tasks (for example, configuring file transfer options, connecting to an FTP site, or transferring files).

To record a script

  1. From the Script menu, choose Start Recording.

    When the script recorder is active, a camera icon appears in the status bar.

  2. Perform the actions you want to record.
  3. From the Script menu, choose Stop Recording.
  4. In the Save Script dialog box, type a name for the script in the File name box.

    The default extension for script files is .rfs.

  5. Click Save.

Note: You cannot record scripts when you are connected to two sites in the same session.
