System (-SYS)

Use the System adapter command (-SYS) to specify the system type when the adapter cannot accurately determine the system type of the FTP server.

The FTP server system type is not necessarily the same as the operating system of the machine it is running on. Some Windows FTP servers use UNIX conventions. If in doubt, consult your server documentation or use the dir command and view the results.

-SYS {WIN32|UNIX|UNKNOWN}
Option
Description
WIN32
The server follows Windows conventions. For example, directories in pathnames are separated by a backward slash (\).
UNIX
The server follows UNIX conventions. For example, directories in pathnames are separated by a forward slash (/).
UNKNOWN
Because the platform is not known, exercise generic code. Do not perform anything that is specific to a platform.
