RE: [newtech-1] FTP application with penultimate synchronisation capabilities

From: Dean C.
Sent on: Sunday, May 11, 2008 11:11 AM
Just a quick shoutout of thanks.

Knowing that this 'was the correct way' to do this made me persevere
with WS FTP Pro and it's gazillion settings - turns out I had it
configured wrong (explains why you should give up some nights when it's
just not working and look at it in the morning with a fresh set of
eyes).

Appreciate all the 'very quick replies' - saved me a heap of time
wasting looking for alternatives.

This is what Newtech should be all about and leave the other 'hubris'
for the playground.


Cheers,
Dean
