For transfers with Enterprise Server/Connect Server/P2P/Client 3.6.0, you can specify a character to replace illegal characters in file and directory names on Windows systems.
The safe character replaces illegal characters only for files and directories written to the local Windows file system. Additionally, the safe character must be a single UTF-8 character that is not reserved by Windows.
Through the command line
To specify a safe character to replace illegal characters for all transfers, run the following
asconfigurator command, where safe_character is your character of choice:
asconfigurator -x "set_node_data;replace_illegal_chars,safe_character"
For example, to replace illegal characters in all the transfers to the local Windows system with “A”, you would run the following:
asconfigurator -x "set_node_data;replace_illegal_chars,A"
You can also specify a safe character for transfers involving users in a specific group:
asconfigurator -x "set_group_data,group_name;replace_illegal_chars,safe_character"
Finally, you can also specify a safe character for transfers involving specific users:
asconfigurator -x "set_user_data,user_name;replace_illegal_chars,safe_character"
You can also configure the safe character by editing

<replace_illegal_chars> tag under
Below is an example for replacing illegal characters in all the transfers to the local Windows system with “A”:
