TRENDSTAR Tip - Download without FTP PDF Print E-mail

This approach to moving files is probably quicker in most cases, because it moves the file without building a list of your entire TRENDSTAR directory.  Here is how it works.

 1) Add a "Generic/Text Only" printer to your workstation.  Add a printer, choose local, FILE:Print to file, generic, generic/text only.  This printer is very helpful for HPM users, too.

2) You can either make this your dedicated printer, or even better, when you are in e-Term or another emulator, make this the printer for the session.

 3) When you have a file you want on your workstation, use the List a File option, and choose dedicated printer.  You will be prompted for the filename.  It is easiest to drop the file on your c:\ root directory then move it later.

 Really large files are probably still best moved with FTP, but this is a super-quick method you may find helpful for everything else.
