|General Configuration Reference|
Client-side handling of symbolic links is configured from the following ascp command line:
> ascp --symbolic-links=option
The following section describes the possible configuration options:
|copy||Copy only the alias file. If a file with the same name exists at the destination, the symbolic link will not be copied.|
|copy+force||Copy only the alias file. If a file with the same name exists at the destination, the symbolic link will replace the file. If the file of the same name at the destination is a symbolic link to a directory, it will not be replaced.|
|follow||Follow symbolic links and transfer the linked files.|
|skip||Ignore the symbolic link.
Important: This is the default and only option for Windows.
