Use the Set transfer mode command to set the file transfer mode. The following modes are available:


AutomaticSelects binary or ASCII mode based on the file type of the file. If the file type is listed in the ASCII mode file extensions list, the transfer is made in ASCII (text) mode otherwise the transfer is made in binary mode.


BinaryTransfers files in binary mode. Use this mode for non-text files like images, applications (.exe),  and word processing files.


TextTransfers files in ASCII mode. Use this mode for text-only files. This mode converts the line-feed characters that appear at the end of lines in text files to allow for the differences in format between different operating systems when uploading or downloading files.
