Troubleshooting FYM startup problems .....

Unless there is a current post from me on the Yahoo forum informing you of Maps & Trains Server issues, then you should assume that your non-connecting issue is with your own connection.

FYM has 3 different schemes (or code sections), which are used to download various files e.g. the startup zips and the TSARs, map files and lastly the train files. It also has 2 different schemes by which train files can be posted on the server.

Which one is right for you can only be determined by you. However the recommendation is to use the default scheme i.e. no CLA) and only change if it gives you problems.

All CLAs are in uppercase.

The 3 schemes are as follows:
1. Native FTP code
2. HTTP (for downloads only)
3. 3rd Party FTP Library


1. Startup zips & TSAR files

a. The default scheme (no CLA) is to use the native FTP code.
b. To use the HTTP scheme - use -BOT.
c. To use the 3rd Party FTP Library - use -BOR.

Only one of the above can be active at any time.

If the initial train file list contains more than just the train files - use -GFO.



2. Downloading Train Files

a. The default scheme (no CLA) is to use native FTP code.
b. To use the HTTP scheme - use -BDN.

If after downloading a train file (with either method), the file remains on the server then either select the file and download again or if this becomes a problem then use -UAD. (This may slow file downloads a little).





3. Uploading Train Files

a. The default scheme (no CLA) is to use native FTP code.
b. To use the 3rd Party Library - use -BUP.

You should only use this option if the files you upload are empty.




4. Downloading Map files (including Connection Maps)

Currently only the HTTP scheme is available (i.e. no CLA).
