Sets the default file transfer mode. Valid values include ASCII mode, Binary mode and Auto-detect. ASCII files are typically plain text files, while binary files can executable, graphics or a proprietary format (for example, database .dbf and MS Word .doc files). Auto-detect automatically selects the proper file transfer mode for each file based on the file's extension. Files with an extension listed in the ASCII File Types list are transferred as ASCII files. Files with an extension not listed in the ASCII File Types list are transferred as binary files.
The default is Auto-detect.
