Using A4 from the GUI

Transfers intiated from the GUI use ascp and ascp4 transfers can be run only from the command line. You can make transfers initiated from the GUI use ascp4 by following these steps.

  1. Back up the ascp executable.
    Locate the ascp executable.
    C:\Program Files [(x86)]\Aspera\Point-to-Point\bin\ascp

    Rename the file ascp-version.bak.

  2. In the same directory, make a copy of ascp4 and rename it ascp.
The transfer server now uses ascp4 for transfers initiated from the GUI.
Important: Not all standard ascp options are available with ascp4.
