If you are already connected to a host, you can start to capture the control port traffic at any time by choosing Capture to file... on the File menu and specifying a disk file name. Alternatively, you can do this while making a connection, by following these steps:


Choose Connect on the File menu to see the Connect to Host dialog box, if this is not currently displayed.


Enter a valid login name and password, and an account (if required). You do not need to select a host type since the correct one is not listed yet.


Check the Capture control port traffic to disk file checkbox.


In the associated text box, enter a path to use as the destination file for the control information. The file does not have to exist already.


Click on Connect. In the main window, you will notice that the connection has been made, but the file list information is probably incorrect. Once you create an appropriate template, files will be listed correctly.


From another program, such as Notepad, open the destination file you have created. Within this file, you will see the control port traffic, including folder and file information.
