Can the file listings auto-refresh after a transfer is complete?

#1 Post by douglerner » 2019-10-16 23:47

I'm a Mac user and my favorite, long-term FTP client (YummyFTP) doesn't work after upgrade to Catalina. So I've been trying different FTP clients. I've tried Forklift and Transmit so far. Both are nice, but both have problems too. And I notice that those problems don't seem to exist in FileZilla. I was surprised. I had been hesitant about using FileZilla because it "looked clunky." But it's actually not bad! :)

By question for now is this: After a file transfer is complete, is there a setting to auto-refresh the target server listing so we can see the update, without refreshing manually?

Thanks,

doug

I was just using it again. It doesn't auto-refresh for me. For example, the time-stamp on an uploaded file does not refresh in the remote pane automatically.

Is there is a settings for this?

Thanks,

Another quick followup. It seems inconsistent. At a 2nd server it did refresh just before. At a 3rd server it did not without me manually refreshing. All the servers have the same files and are using the same FTP server software (2 dev servers and a live server).

Refresh might not work if you reduced max number of connections to 1 in the Site Manager, or if the server disconnected you while editing was underway.
