ASCII or BINARY FTP? UTF-8? - 02/18/16 06:04 AM

Hi, by using the "FTP output" task, it seems there's no option which allows to send FTP commands.

In particular I need to transfer a text file across systems, sending from PlanetPress and receiving on a remote system and this text file happens to be encoded in UTF-8.
I have the doubt that the file is NOT UTF-8 once transferred, so I'd like to have a confirmation wether "FTP Output" tasks transfer in ASCII or BINARY mode.

The data is transferred in BINARY mode, there is therefore no parsing/interpreting of the data as it is being transferred.
