External Support Binaries

External Support Binaries

ENiGMA½ relies on various external binaries in order to perform common tasks such as processing file archives and extracting information from uploads/file imports, some legacy transfer protocols, etc.

:correct: Before using features such as the File Base or File Transfer Protocols it is highly recommended to install support binaries!
