Mirror Sync

#1 Post by jdantzler » 2013-01-08 16:34

Is there any way to sync a folder with files in via a mirror sync like you can do in WinSCP? If not will it be supported soon? Filezilla speeds are so much faster than WinSCP but I need the mirror sync function or it is almost useless to me.

FileZilla does not support automatic sync. And it does not support server-to-server transfers, either.

Isn't that strange? FTP support in WinSCP is based on FileZilla AFAIK.

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.
All FileZilla products fully support IPv6. http://worldipv6launch.org

Last time I checked, WinSCP used the old 2.x codebase of FileZilla.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up for me. Do you think it will be supported in the future? Are there currently any plans to do so? I know it can be done if it is already implemented in WinSCP.

I am not sure why Filezilla is faster than WinSCP but it is by a good margin too.

So, this could be why it is slower? If it was updated to a newer codebase it could possibly be faster?

Possibly. Can't tell without actually doing it.
