sftp plugin - synchronize dirs not working

Post by *kamilp »

Hello,
this is my first post so I need to thank you for great piece of software.
I need help with SFTP plugin - I have 1.0 final and TC 8.06 beta.
Here is my problem - I open sftp in right panel, and I need to synchronize remote dir with local files based on file content

However, some files remain with red question mark after comparision. When I press Ctrl+F3 on files shows file content with comparision of them.
So my question is why I still have the red quesiton marks there. Does the sftp plugin support file content comparision ?

Thanks for answer.

P.S.
I wanted to add link to screenshot, but it was denied :-(

Hello, kamilp.

Your screenshot seems to tell us two things:
+ No comparison based on content has been performed.
+ No pair of files, separated by a red question mark, seems to be identical, telling from the different file sizes.

I wonder whether upgrading to the latest version of the sFTP plugin, v1.1, available here will help.

Kind regards,
Karl

i have upgraded both totalcmd to 8.0B8 x64 and downloaded the sftp plugin 1.1 x64
however it does not help
here is another screenshot

aparently, there are some identical files and total commande has not compared them. E.g the file AreasCfg.xml is idential on both sides. when I press CTRL+F3 it says it is identical.

Hello, kamilp.

Telling from your experience and my own - checked it out this morning using T.C. 8.0ß8 and sFTP 1.1 (both 32-bit) - I can confirm that comparing by content does not happen during "Synchronize dirs" even though the option [x] by content has been ticked before clicking on the [Compare] button.

Cannot tell whether it should work or whether the "by content" option should be grayed out (de-activated).

Cheers,
Karl

but I am sure that in some previous versions it was working. maybe it was different sftp plugin.
I dont know the version, because I had to reinstall my computer and I put everything new versions :-(

Hi. Any prospects for having support for compare by content when synch'ing dirs in an SFTP server?
Thanks!
