    use binary for zipped files, images, everything that's not text, ascii for text only, most (non window$) clients will auto select, in windows you need to specify bin for binary for files or else you end up gibberish.

    [glowpurple]manually editing your config files can break them. If this happens, you get to keep both pieces. [/glowpurple]

    use ASCII unless you have to have an exact copy then use binary... I dont know why but I know normal transfers are in ASCII not binary. Use the automatic setting if you can or just ASCII
