    The 'transfer window' aete entry indicates that
    numeric index is valid for remote files/items.
    However, I cannot access them that way (it
    compiles, but errors when run, saying it can't
    get it). I'm trying to get a list of every
    remote file in a directory. If I ask for the
    remote item of transfer window 1, it returns
    the hostname(!).

    Is there a trick to make it work?

    Thanks for the report -- that appears to be a bug. If the transfer window you're interested in is in front, you can omit that part of the object reference. So instead of:

    remote item 1 of transfer window 1

    you'd just use:

    remote item 1

    That appears to avoid the bug.

    Thanks again,

    Cool, thanks!

    Hey, whatcha think:

    old: BBE FTP Open
    new: Boo FTP Open

    or something dumb like MultiEdit FTP...
    It's tough thinking up a new name!
