Subject Re: SFTP file transfer for large files using flex
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 14:55:19 GMT
Hi JP,

Thanks for taking time to reply! Stackoverflow had questions like this but
not satisfactory answers. This was my last ditch effort since the other
option is to write my own SFTP plug (which clients wont pay me to do :|).

As for the apps, this upload needs to be 'part' of a desktop application
written in adobe air so can't use any of these other tools :(

Thanks
Avinash Y
