first of all i do not know if it is a bug, maybe it is a way the WinSCP works.
The situation: i want to make a link of WAV file to a different folder, and the link on this shortcut i want to play on the internet browser.
I found that it does not work with the default WinSCP shortcuts. I can make the shortcut to the destionation folder, yes. But this shortcut can not be played in internet browser. My friend he has Linux server where the data (WAV) are located. It is confirmed that the shortcut works on browsers if he create this on his server.
To make WinSCP shortcuts to work properly i need to edit them. The default WinSCP shortcuts do not work (i.e. they can not be played in internet browsers), they give the error 403 "Forbidden".
To make the WinSCP work properly i need to edit the shortcut's path "Link/shortcut poiting at": I have to delete the path and replace it only with "../myfolder/FILE.WAV". After this it works.
So, can you update it and correct this, please? It will help a lot if the default WinSCP will be playable on internet browsers.
Anyway, working with shortcuts in WinSCP is very cumbersome.
I did expect that it WinSCP will offer similar function to create shortcuts as the Total Commander - the best and easiest way for creating and managing shortcuts -> single click on the button and you have it. In WinSCP i have to copy/paste everything i.e. i have to copy the path of destination first (it means to find it and copy it and than go back to the directory with the file) and paste it to the "File with link/shortcut" box, plus copy there the file name. Everything is manual in WinSCP ->t is not productive. I have hundreds of files for which i want to create shortucts. So it is obvious that it will be a work for several hours...
So, do you plan to update and simplify work with shortcuts, please? I would like to see the way of creating shortcuts via the button "make a shortcut". But of course, it will demand the ability of two windows of one server location: 'server window' against 'server window'. Now it is possible to have only 'personal window (my PC/notebook/etc)' against 'server window'.
Is there any will or even concrete plans to change it? I will really really really appreciate any progress on this.
