Default Value



The RemoteHost property specifies the IP address (IP number in dotted internet format) or Domain Name of the OFTP server. It is set before a connection is attempted and cannot be changed once a connection is in progress.

If the RemoteHost property is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated and upon successful termination of the request, the RemoteHost property is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

If the class is configured to use a SOCKS firewall, the value assigned to this property may be preceded with an "*". If this is the case, the host name is passed to the firewall unresolved and the firewall performs the DNS resolution.
