These options below allow you to define rules to tell FlashFXP what you want to do when a certain condition is met.
To access this dialog go to Options -> File Transfer Rules
In a new installation of FlashFXP no rules are defined.
The transfer rules allow you to set up conditions based on the destination file size, date, or type of transfer and set a pre-defined action, these actions are Ask, Overwrite, Skip, Resume, Rename.
In this example we have added 5 rules defined to show you the flexibilty of the file transfer rules.
- If size is equal and time is equal then skip.
Regardless of the type of transfer if the size and time are equal then the file is automatically skipped.
- If transfer is upload then ask.
if the transfer is upload then ask the user what they want to do.
- If size is smaller and time is equal then resume.
Regardless of the type of transfer if the size is smaller and the time is equal then we want to resume the file.
- If time is older then overwrite.
Regardless of the type of transfer if the time is older then we want to overwrite.
- If size is equal and time is newer then skip.
Regardless of the type of transfer if the size is equal and the time is newer than skip the file transfer.
