problem is that i have a slow connection.
so, if i got a big file, say >5MB
it'll take very long time for me to download it from a web,
and then upload the file to my server.

need a feature that i can tell my server to download the file
directly from another web/ftp server

Well, that must be a feature of your server not the client.

No, ever heard of FXP? This standard allows you to transfer files from one ftp server to another through a client, without sending it through your (slow) connection. Say you connect to two 10mbit ftp's and your connection is only ISDN, you could tranfser between the two ftp's in 10mbit speed.. But this is not something I personally want for WinSCP - use the FlashFXP client instead!

Sure, I've heard about FXP. That is what I'm talking about. FXP is feature of FTP server and the client only uses the feature. WinSCP is not FTP client, it is SCP/SFTP client and neighter of the protocols support such feature.

sure we can use other progs for other things.

i just hope i only need to use one prog for
all my file transfer need.

so i wont need to use prog a to upload a zip
from other web, then use prog b to extract the zip,
then use prog c to change file attributes, etc...

if only all can be done with one prog...

if you do scp from one remote server to another.. does that go thru the local machine too? if not can you add that feature? where both left and right panel are remote connection. also need a refresh remote connection feature, going to a different directory and then come back to it doesnt refresh it...

Sorry, but I don't intend to do this. Anyway I consider SCP protocol to be obsolete. SFTP is the future Smile

You'll find the option in menu. Hot key is Ctrl+R or F5. You may also turn off caching of remote directories (Environment tab of login dialog).
