TCPIP Services, FTP, Copying Files, VMS Plus Mode
*Conan The Librarian
FTP performs fast file transfers between two OpenVMS systems by using VMS Plus Mode. When FTP identifies file transfers between two OpenVMS hosts running TCP/IP Services, it transfers files in large blocks rather than in small records. VMS Plus Mode greatly increases the transfer speed and preserves all Record Management Services (RMS) file attributes. FTP automatically disables VMS Plus Mode when your session is with a UNIX host or with an OpenVMS host not running TCP/IP Services.
