I have tried to upload an ASCII file that has a character length of 350, but after it's transferred, the file gets truncated to 256 characters. What can I do?

The filename length limit depends on the filesystem. In your case, the server seems to run on a OS / filesystem with a limit of 256 chars and there's nothing you can do about it (besides asking the FTP server's admin to switch to another filesystem ;-)

Thank you eyebex...

At least I know it's not a setting that I am missing on my end.
