The Question is:
How can we send BINARY files via FTAM over X.25?
We use command:
$copy /log /app=ftam 'localfile' alias"user passwd account"::'rfile'
, but file gets transferred as ASCII.
We can not find anywhere in DECnet/OSI FTAM documentation - how to "say" that
file need to be transfer as binary (as FTAM-3 document type).
The Answer is :
FTAM on OpenVMS transfers files based on the RMS file attributes.
Typically, FTAM-3 file transfers are assumed necessary when the file
attributes appear sufficiently similar to an executable file or to
a BACKUP saveset.
There exists an appendix in the documentation which describes which
attributes cause which FTAM file type to be used.
