Yes, make sure you have Automatically refresh directory after operation enabled (what is by default).
I see in Options, under Environment - Panels - Remote, there are 3 checkboxes, two of which control "Automatically refresh directory after operation" and "Refresh remote panel every X secs."
I guess I have to make do with these two options.
When I change folders on the server side, how can I make the server side window refresh the file list automatically. Now I have to always hit CTRL-R. Shouldn't there be a way so the file list auto-updates so I don't need to remember to hit CTRL-R for refresh?
