Hi,
FTP Synchronizer is a great tool. However, I can never get it to work. I am using VB 2005 .NET 2.0. And I started by running it from the example viewer. The example runs and connect to the server, but when I click on "synchronize", I get a lot of errors. The error reads as follows:

- Could not get file modification time. (code 550) "I get 5 pop up messages boxes of this type after clicking synchronize."
- Error - System reference not set to an instance of an object .... "then a lot of exception details."



My second question is, can I do the synchronization tasks at run time in my code rather than in GUI. I want to sun synchronization to almost 200 ftp servers in a loop.

Thanks

Correction: Actually you can adjust for different time-zones by setting the TimeDifference property on FTPConnection/ExFTPConnection/SecureFTPConnection.

Hi I was referring to the latest modifications up to the following post.

Actually, I was waiting for some feedback, but I gather you agree with them so we'll go ahead and implement them. We're tied up with some other work at the moment, but should have it done by early next week.

Oh, yes, that's been done and is included in the latest version 5.0.1 (see history). You can use the link that was included in the download instructions that you received when you purchased the product.

Are these changes included in other versions of edtftpnet, like free and express versions?

edtFTPnet does not include synchronization features, but edtFTPnet/Express does. The latest version of edtFTPnet/Express contains the changes mentioned above.

I have edtFTPnet/PRO 5.0.4.

Synchronizing via SynchronizeView (Property SyncLocalDateAfterDownload and RealTimeUpdate in SynchronizeView both set to TRUE) works as expected.
If I synchonize via secure ftp connection and set SyncLocalDateAfterDownload to true in the DefaultSyncRules, I get the following stack trace:

Hi Daniel

Sorry for the slow reply.

I've identified the line of code that's failing, but I'm a little confused as to how it happened. Would you please e-mail a DEBUG level log to support@enterprisedt.com?
