Previously we had a process which used FTP to transfer files from an iSeries. We utilized the "ASCII" option in the configuration options but see no such item in sFTP. Thus when transferred file comes across it lands as unreadable on the window environment. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You.

SFTP is a binary only transfer protocol and does not provide ascii mode as part of its functionality. We recommend that you use a protocol such as FTP or FTPS that has this ability.
