 Internet Internet Transfer control

Came across an odd problem.

I am able to pull a file from a UNIX server using the Internet Transfer
control with ifFTP. However, the file comes across just as if I had used a
regular FTP client with the "binary" setting rather than "text".

There doesn't seem to be any property or parameter in the Internet Transfer
Control which would allow me to specify that I want an ascii transfer.

Since my primary purpose was to load a file into a rich text object, even
though the file came across as binary it displays properly. However, I also
have a feature which will allow me to save the contents of the rich text
box using the SaveFile method as rtfText. However, when I open the file
with text pad it is very obvious that the CrLf sequence is wrong.

I ended up doing this:

rtfLog.Text = Replace(rtfLog.Text,vbLf,vbCrLf)

Is this reasonable? Is there a better way to do this? Are there any ways to
trick the transfer control to bring the file across as ascii instead of
