UNIX-specific unified configuration options

This topic describes the unified configuration values to define for the following Unix options in Transfer CFT:

Command line history (readline)

Parameter Default Description
cft.unix.readline.enable YES | NO Enable readline history for CFTUTIL PKIUTIL and SECUTIL.
cft.unix.readline.history_fname $(HOME)/.cft_history Readline history file.
cft.unix.readline.history_size 1000 Readline history size.

System user

Parameter Description
cft.unix.cftsu.afunix Defines the address family file for inter-process communications.
cft.unix.cftsu.isservice Defines the use of CFTSU as a service.
cft.unix.cftsu.fname Specify the absolute path name to the CFTSU to execute when the user control is enabled, to enable upgrading without being the system administrator.

See Unix: Using system users.

Separating filename and extension

Parameter Default Description
cft.unix.parse_file_name_suffix No

Use this setting for a Transfer CFT running in Unix to separate the extension from the name of the file, as is done in Windows.

Possible values:

  • Yes: Enables Unix to mimic Windows functioning so that the name of the file and the type of extension are presented separately
  • No: Disables the feature to have normal Unix file functioning with no extension type displayed

See Suffix management.
