Subject Re: SFTP file transfer for large files using flex
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 13:24:00 GMT
Hi Avinash,

My quick take on this is why you would want to recreate a tool for
this?  Aren't there plenty of free SFTP apps already?  Why not take
advantage of one of them? Tortoise, Cute, WinSCP, FileZilla, etc.

Also, questions like these might be better asked on other forums like
stack overflow.  This mailing list is for questions and development
regarding the next release of Flex.

Regards,

JP
