FTP - editing file
« on: October 30, 2016, 14:59:41 »

I have problem with using FTP. I try to edit file, file is opened in text editor then i make changes and click save. But nothing happend becouse file is saved only in temp location in local drive. File on ftp server is saved only when i close the editor with file and ask me about to save to file on server.
Is it possible to send file to server at the moment when i click save in file's editor?

And other question. Is it possible to use SFTP protocol? SSL/TLS isn't the same like SFTP

Problem is that MC do not know when you are done editing until the external program is closed, But until then there is no guarantee that not something else is changing the file.

Correct  FTP-SSL is not the same as SFTP..   SFTP is not even FTP. it is a totally different protocol. (FileTransfer over SSH)
And it is not support by the FTP FileSystem Plugin. it will require its own virtual filesystem plugin. And It is on my list.
