This is a discussion question, so will award points for any useful suggestion.
I'm looking for a client for Win 7 that will sync with a Linux server via FTP. The server is hosting a website and I want to manage some of the files.
Here are my requirements:
Local cached copy. I don't want the latency of working live on the server.
Automatic sync. Changes made to server or cache will be propagated to the other. Knowing sync status would be useful.
Ability in the cache to manage server's permissions. I'd like some items to be not publicly available.
Navigation of server file structure. Having a GUI that gives a tree structure would be nice but not essential.
Secure connection. SFTP would be nice but not essential.
I've looked at a variety of FTP clients. I haven't found one that will provide a local cache in which I can manage the server file permissions, since Windows' structure is so different than Linux.
