I'm not sure how best to describe the issues I've been having with smart ftp but they are either numerous or all related to each other (in some way). Here is a recent scenario:
File uploaded with Smart FTP from machine A.
File then editted with Smart FTP using remote edit feature (still on machine A).
File then editted with another FTP program from machine B (this all uploads OK).
File attempted to be edited using Smart FTP from machine A (the same installation which created it). From this stage, one of two things tend to be happening...
1. This is not downloading the latest version from the server, it uses the copy it last editted it itself (so changes made from another machine do not show up). Cache is not enabled and I have tried clearing the cache.
2. The file opens but is corrpupted. This seems to be in the form of two merged files (the old copy it last editted itself and the correct version from the server.
If needed, here is the log from an attempt I just made. It resulted in a file consisting of the old version (the version it originally created) followed by the last 180 lines of the correct version (the version editted by machine .
