/ \ " : ' ? > < & * |
Start the application by launching asperascp, and double-click the connection within the Connection panel, or select it and click Connect.
In the connections panel, the Target Directory shows either a specific path when the target directory is set, or the last-visited folder when left blank. For how to set up the target directory, see Managing Connections.
To transfer a file to or from the remote computer, select the file to transfer and then click the upload or download arrow.
You can transfer files or folders between the right and left browser panels using drag-and-drop or copy-and-paste.
Within either the left or right browser panel, you can move files or folders using drag-and-drop or cut-and-paste, and you can copy them using copy-and-paste.
Too many files selected. Select fewer files, or transfer the folder containing your selection instead.
The file limit is OS dependent.
The limit does not apply to copy-and-paste operations within the same file browser panel.
Once the transfer has been successfully initiated, a progress bar will appear in the Transfers panel. If you have multiple ongoing transfers, use the and to change the selected transfer's priority. The # field indicates the transfer's order in the queue. Also the , , and can be used to control the selected transfer session.
The Details button provides additional visibility and control (if granted the proper permissions) over transfers. Select a transfer session from the Transfers panel and click Details to view details and/or adjust settings.
The following items are on the Details display:
|A||Details (tab)||Transfer details, including status (rate and ETA) and statistics (session size, files transferred vs. total files to be transferred, average speed, time elapsed, RTT delay and average loss in percent).|
|B||Files (tab)||All files being transferred in this session, along with each files' size and transfer progress.|
|C||Transfer controls||Set the FASP transfer policy and transfer rate, if allowed.
Important: If --policy is not set, ascp uses the server-side policy setting (fair by default).
|D||Transfer Monitor||The transfer graph. Note that you may use the sliders to adjust the transfer rate up or down (if allowed).|
If you have administrator privileges, you can set the target transfer rate for all users from the Global Preferences dialog. As an individual user, you can override the global settings from My Preferences. To update these settings, go to Tools > Global Preferences or Tools > Preferences. You can also open My Preferences from the Preferences button in the upper-right corner of the application's main window; from there you can also reach the Global Preferences dialog by clicking Global Preferences.
The following options are available under the Transfers tab:
|Global Bandwidth Limits||The aggregated bandwidth cap for all FASP transfers on this computer. For more advanced bandwidth settings, see Bandwidth. (Set by administrators only.)|
|Default Target Rate||The initial download and upload rates for all transfers.|
|Maximum Active Transfers||The maximum number of concurrent upload transfers and download transfers.|
