THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:
A Monitor Folder Event Rule triggering an SFTP offload can cause files to be created in the monitored folder, then some (or none) of the intended files are offloaded.
When ASCII (text) files are added to the monitored folder, EFT Server must create a temporary file to strip off the line feeds in the file before transferring it, because SFTP only supports binary transfers. The temporary file then triggers the Monitor Folder Event Rule again.
You can modify the Windows Registry to default all transfers to binary, or modify the Monitor Folder event rule to exclude TMP files. Each option is described below.
- Modify the registry on EFT Server so that the ClientFTP.DLL settings are configured so that NO file extension is considered ASCII, defaulting all transfer types to BINARY.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GlobalSCAPE, Inc.\TED 6\Settings\Transfer\DefaultTransferType
TRANSFER_TYPE_AUTO = 0 (if key = 0, nothing changes; Auto detect mode)
TRANSFER_TYPE_ASCII = 1
TRANSFER_TYPE_BINARY = 2 It means that
- Update the Monitor Folder event to exclude "*.tmp" by changing the condition for the rule:
"Physical Path does not match *.tmp"
On a 64-bit OS, the location is [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\GlobalSCAPE ...].
