Re: Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix?

I hate to say this, but FileZilla could really use a small, simple internal text editor... only way to ensure consistency of the data. FileZilla knows exactly when the internal editor has finished saving. I think that's not necessary. The bug we discussed in this post is not specific to editors. An...

Re: Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix?

How do you solve the problem with a program doing a two-stage write with exclusive access? Consider this sequence: - Editor writes to file, closes file handle. But the work is not yet done, the file right now is inconsistent! - Your script kicks in - While file is still uploading, editor tries to r...

Re: Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix?

I don't think the team has ever said that this is impossible, only that they wont do it. You didn't even read this thread fully. Quote from botg, 1st reply: It is a technical impossibility Boco, so right! It's been a long time since I read that, I totally forgot. I was wrong. So yes, botg has claim...

Re: Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix?

Ok, as a stopgap I've uploaded my (incredibly simple) FTP/SSH auto-sync program here: https://code.google.com/p/remotefoldersync/ It's very simple. Needs python & paramiko. Just run with the command line args you want, and it'll automatically upload files when they've changed on the local folder. No...

Re: Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix?

I don't know why the FileZilla team finds this functionality 'impossible'. Even if it finds it just unsafe, why not warn for this, and let the user take the risk? Careful here - I don't think the team has ever said that this is impossible, only that they wont do it. And while I truly wish this were...

Re: Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix?

Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix? Are users still not searching the forums? It is a technical impossibility, I've explained the reasons a dozen times. I'm not sure if you've read my full post. It does seem technically possible. At least that's where we ended up the last time we...

Is automatic uploading of changed files still wontfix?

First off, thanks so much for filezilla. It's such a great FTP program, and with the add of synced browsing it's gotten easier than I imagined it could. I love using the View/Edit local file to edit a file, and then have FZ ask me when the file's changed if I want to upload it. That's really conveni...

Re: Suggestion: auto upload when editing files

Determining when it has changed is not the problem. The problem is deciding when it is safe to upload the changed files. Hey botg, What did you think of my idea to put the feature in, even if it's just for advanced users and carries big huge warning signs? How do we get advanced functionality into ...

Re: Suggestion: auto upload when editing files

If there's an option, everybody will be just enabling it, ignoring the risks. And then loudly complain the next day when all their files are corrupt. But I also think that this suggestion would allow advanced users to use it Now assume you're not using Windows or have the files on a network share t...

Suggestion: auto upload when editing files

I searched and found this closed topic: http://forum.filezilla-project.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6016 The problem: When I right click on a server file and hit "View/Edit", anytime I modify the file I get a prompt in Filezilla: A file previously opened has changed: (filename) Upload this file back to t...

Re: Tons of connections from "System Process", Error 421

During transfers and listings, 1 FTP Connection = 1 control connection + 1 data connection = 2 TCP connections. It's a bit ambiguous, but I wonder which "connection" is used where. In Filezilla, under the site manager, is "Limit number of simultaneous connections" referring to FTP Connections (ie. ...

Re: Tons of connections from "System Process", Error 421

Yeah, somehow the handshake with the server is interrupted in the 421 case. Maybe some 'security' software blocking ACK or NACK packets, could be at the server side, too. Connections stay 'half-open'. The problem is you would eventually use up your local sockets, beeing unable to connect until some...

Re: Tons of connections from "System Process", Error 421

This is weird. Using Active or Passive mode? Sockets in Windows are put on hold by the system (around 4 minutes) before they can be reused. But even that doesn't explain the tons of open connections. Somewthing on your system seems to prevent them from closing gracefully, so they stay in limbo unti...
