    In regards to the topic Copy files on the server

    I'm getting an error: the server dropped the connection (may be to busy).
    I then turned the direct server-to-server transfers off but kept the two windows named different and the files do copy but they must be copping to my HD then back up to the server (which defeats the purpose).

    My question is, is the error I'm getting just a limitation of the server I'm uploading to, or a setting that they have set on the server which disallows me to do direct server-to-server transfers?

    ps. It's a UNIX server running apache

    I would have to look at a transcript of the failed transfer to tell (choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to reveal the transcript).

    Thanks,

    Thanks Jim,
    I've got it working (don't know why it wouldn't the other day). But I can't see any difference in speed between the Direct vs. indirect server-to-server transfers? Whether I have it turned on or off it will only copy files from one directory to another at my modem/connection speed. Is this correct? Therefore it's the same as uploading it from my computer. I could see if I wanted to copy a file from one server to another with out down-loading it to my computer were this would be faster. But I was after the ability of getting the server to copy the file locally (like when you move a file), is this possible?

    If you have direct transfers turned on then Fetch should try to make the copy happen entirely on the server. But the server or your connection to the Internet might not support that, and in those cases Fetch falls back on the slower version.

    If you turn on direct transfers and the transfer is still slow send me the transcript and I'll see if I can figure out why.
