sbs2011 / filezilla file visibility
Posted on 2014-03-14
We have a single sbs2011 server, and we are using Filezilla to enable some external clients to pass data to us. Usually quite large files of 20 to 30mb at a time.
We have 3 local users who are sharing this location, and we have set up a group called ftpusers and given the group rights to this location. Each user has a drive mapped to this area, and seems to work OK in part.
We find that if a user has the drive map open on their desktop, when a file arrives, it frequently does not appear. even if we press f5 to refresh or close down the drive map and retry.
However, if one of the inavtive users logs in, or one of the active users, logs out and back in again, the file immediately appears.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why these files are so difficut to view, and what we can do about it to resolve the matter??
Any help would be appreciated.
