How to transfer IMAGE Files with CA XCOM Data Transport. 

What type of files does XCOM support?

What is the maximum size?

Are binary file supported on all platforms?

What parameters do I need to use?

Resolution:

XCOM supports Binary, ASCII and EBCDIC format files. 
There is no limit to the size of the file. 
All platforms support binary. You should always transfer image files as binary. When XCOM transfers a binary file, it transfers it without modifying it in any way. 

On XCOM for Linux, Unix and Windows, you would use the parameter code_flag set to binary and carriage_flag=no.
