Topic "Two Remote Directories?"

I tried to search the forums a bit, but I may be asking something abnormal - and forgive me for my ignorance. I have a managed server offsite and with that comes NAS. I was curious to know if it's possible to set WINSCP up to show two REMOTE directories instead of one local and one remote?

Thank you for your help....

Well in my case it would be nice because I sometimes need to compare files in two remote locations.

OK, I see. However this is very difficult to implement.
This request has been added to tracker though.

And what about two panels of same remote host?

This would be very useful to manipulate (copy/move/new/delete/etc) files on the same remote host.

Currently, I only get that, by opening a remote ssh session, and using Midnight Commander.
It would be the dream of those who need daily handle thousands of remote files.

Thanks Razz

That's not the problematic part. Problematic part are the two remote panels.

Hi

Excellent program. Thanks.

I have a number of remotes using shared local folders. If I open one session I get one tab, two panes. If I open an additional session I get another tab, and therefore four panes of which I can see 2 at any one time, and so on for more sessions. It would be really useful to be able to see multiple panes with the common local one shown only once.

Of course this may be already possible - but I cannot see how, and I think it probably breaks the explorer/commander paradigm.

I can open two instances of WinSCP, and use Win+arrow to stack them side by side, but two is really the limit of this.

martin, if it's not problematic, could you please consider to implement it? I mean two remote panels (from same machine) in one view.

Maybe I was not clear. I've meant that the two panels with the same home, do not make the problem easier comparing to two panels with a different host.
