File transfer is very slow on getting and changing directories. This is very annoying, especialy when you want to quickly upload a file to one of the hosts. It takes forever to get the initial file list and then another day to get to the directory where you want to place the file. Even on a local network. o_O Could you please look into this? This can work much faster. When I compare the file transfer directory changing of other remote programs with Remote Utilities, Remote Utilities is a slug and the others are turbos. I realy like Remote Utilities for all of its functionality which in return is great compared to what others offer, but the file transfer is a bummer... Since I don't want to install more than one remote software or an external ftp server, and I absolutely am a fan of Remote Utilities, please do something about it. I'm sure you would make a lot of us happy.
This is a known problem and it stems from the architecture of this connection mode. We, however, do plan to update the File Transfer mode so that it works faster in this respect. This can happen in one of the upcoming updates.
Unfortunately, do to a lot of more pressing priorities we didn't implement that in this 6.5 update. Sorry for that.
We will surely do our best to make you happy. That's all I can say :)
Add me to this "it would be great if you got this fixed" list! This is the only frustration that we have with RU. Tried all of the other remote control solutions and RU is the best, except for this issue.
I know this is an old thread but... File Transfer is virtually useless due to constantly being unable to load a directory... any directory. Support said change the Access to system and that works sometimes but, just as often, it helps to change it back to User. My Viewer and Hosts are all current and it happens no matter which host I'm accessing. If this was updated, it has a long way to go before it's ready for prime time. Help!
Yes, this is a known problem. A fix requires some extensive revamp of the File Transfer mode and we have this on our roadmap. We will do our best to implement this as fast as we can, perhaps even this year.
