Transfer Mode 

ASCII (short for American Standard Code for Information Interchange)

This mode is appropriate for files that only contain plain text.
Examples: .html, .php, .asp


This mode is appropriate for files that do not contain only plain text.
Examples: .zip, .rar, .exe, .png, .jpg


FlashFXP will automatically determine whether a file should be transferred in ASCII or binary mode using a customizable list of file extensions. The list of ASCII file extensions can be modified to include proprietary file extensions. Files will transfer in binary mode unless their extensions are defined in the list.
To configure the ASCII filter list see the Filters Dialog.


When using FlashFXP, Auto is the preferred (and default) transfer mode.
