Default 2nd login for updating file list

Before I get flamed and stuff, I want to state from the start, that I know that my suggestion requires somehow multi-threading, but read it though:

What about enabling FlashFXP to login to the server a second time (permission provided), so that it can update the file list during a transfer...?
This wouldn't _really_ require much work, as you don't have to create MDI childs and stuff, only a little thread that runs in the background... You don't have to control much, it'S always the same commands it has to send...

Think about it.

So long,
Obeliks

You mean like this?
Options \ Preferences \ Options \ Update Directory Cache During Transfer

hm, first thx, didn't know this option existed

but second, this slows down the transfer... because between the files is has to do a list command, and if you haven'T got the best routing, this can take several seconds...

So doing this with a seconds login could win precious time

So long,

when all files in the dir/ are downloaded, the cache will be updated, example (cause this was my idea )

You are downloading from a dir/ that has 2 files in it, but should be 10 (there still coming in)

you queue this dir/ 10 times over, and start to download, now when the first queued dir/ is done, cache is updated, and you now see more uploaded files and flash starts to download the newer ones

ok, now I get it... not very useful imho... then I'd better go for that one:
http://forum.flashfxp.com/showthread...&threadid=3094

But best would still with a second login, cause that doesn't slow down the transfer!

Yeah but when you're connecting to a site that allows only one connection from the same IP then you'll get nothing. Moreover you will have problems with connecting to such site.
Of course this can be solved with additional checkmark in Preferences/Site Manager/Quick Connect but IMHO it's good as it is right now.

Just disable file caching, effect the same only takes a little longer and doesn't slow your transfer with bigger listings.



Peace
