Before the File opens it must be downloaded.
I think there is something else going on. I can upload and download this very small file using SmartFTP, and it takes less than 1 second. If the file to be edited on the remote system has to be downloaded to the local systrem before editing it, then this operation should be very quick, not 30-40 seconds. Or, am I missing something here? (I also see a 30-40 second delay from when I do a 'save' in notepad, to when the changed file is written to the remote system.)
