About remote configurations

For the initial Transfer CFT startup, you must define each of the initial configuration files before you can perform a transfer. This configuration can later be modified or added to using either the command line or GUI interface.

You can dynamically configure the Transfer CFT from either of the user interfaces while the product is running. You can use commands such as CFTSEND, CFTRECV, CFTAUTH, CFTIDF, and CFTLATE to configure and monitor file transfers.

Setting up the local Transfer CFT

This section describes how to use the initial configuration objects in Copilot for Transfer CFT. The Initial environment refers to parameters that are originally set for Transfer CFT on start-up, and are the standard settings for Transfer CFT.

This topic introduces the icons and commands in the Main window of this interface.

The execution environment, or initial Transfer CFT configuration, groups together the set of parameters used by Transfer CFT on start-up. If you modify these parameters, you must stop and restart the monitor in order for the parameters to be taken into account. If you do not restart the Transfer CFT, a Red exclamation point red exclamation point is displayed after the Initial Configuration node in the left pane window indicating that the modifications are not updated.

Note that you can create more than one Initial configuration. The configuration that is currently being used, IDPARM0 for example, is listed by its ID after the Initial Configuration folder in the left pane object manager in the following format:

Folder Initial configuration: IDPARM0

Copilot enables you to edit other configurations that are currently running on your Transfer CFT.

Initial Transfer CFT configuration objects

Copilot for Transfer CFT provides a means of remotely managing Transfer CFT in a Windows like environment using commands such as CFTLOG, CFTCOM, and CFTPARM for configuring and monitoring file transfers. Transfer CFT provides a set of tools, CFTSEND and CFTRECV, for configuring file transfers as well as logging via a set of internal files in the log and catalog.

Transfer CFT provides a set of specific objects for:

  • Initial environment
  • Ongoing environment

Window tabs located under the toolbar in the Copilot for Transfer CFT window are listed below. Optional objects that are not configured are displayed as orange nodes.

Ongoing GUI configuration objects

The Transfer CFT file transfer environment, the ongoing configuration, groups together the set of Transfer CFT parameters and files used by Transfer CFT. You can modify these parameters without stopping the Transfer CFT.
