File transfers are always initiated from the workstation program. You cannot start a file transfer by typing a command at your host system prompt.

  • When using CMS, you must be at the “R;” prompt. For file transfer with CMS, do not forget to start the options list with an open parenthesis “(”, or add the “Set Cmsxfer On” command to the ITERM.INI profile.
  • When using TSO you must be at the “READY” prompt. You cannot be in any SPF panel when starting a file transfer.
  • When using MUSIC you must be in the “*Go” mode. Make sure that the screen will not enter the “More...” mode, or the file transfer will fail.
