Transfer mode for server-initiated transfers

Transfer mode for server-initiated transfers is determined by protocol and file content type.

For AS2, transfer mode is always binary. For all other protocols, including FTP(S), HTTP(S), and SFTP, SecureTransport uses the content-type of the file name to determine whether a transfer is text (ASCII) or binary (IMAGE).

If the content type is text, the file is transferred as text. If the content-type is not text, the file is transferred as binary.

Content-type is determined based on the file name extension. The default mapping for file name extension to content-type is stored in the file, <FILEDRIVEHOME>/conf/mime.types. Use the Server Configuration page to edit this file to change or add entries.
