Steve, did you just "tell" VWS to use Fling instead of its built in FTP engine??

No, there are two check boxes in the WeatherFlash (I hope this doesn't get this started again  :roll:) setup in VWS. One check box activates the process of creating the files, the other one activates sending it to the server. I just unchecked the server box. It still creates the files and Fling takes over from there.

Steve, reason I asked was that WD allows you to use an external FTP engine to replace the built in one, but looking over the docs now, the only place I would use it is already done via NSLog (Nexstorm screen cap, WASP2 screen cap). :-k

I'll probably find a use for it some time soon.  ;)

I did not mean to say you were knocking Fling.  I totally agree with you.   Maybe no one has asked.... if it was a person/company like WD or my brultech guy I would probably have asked, and it would be on the site the next day with that feature.

My guess would be the response from NCH would be something like, "if you would like fully featured ftp...blah...blah.... try out Fling Plus, or Classic FTP Plus...for only A$??.99"

Andrew

I wondered that too... I cant see a way. I tried at one point...... But its hard to knock a free piece of software for that.  Strangely you can tell it to ignore a bunch of wildcarded file names and types.  So it has ignore, but not include logic.

Steve

It wasn't my intention to knock fling, obviously a lot of people find it very useful, it just seems such a totally logical thing to want to do  :?

Well, do NOT go to fling dot com unless you are looking for a non-FTP connection :lol:

Andrew, see if that file I posted will do what your script is doing if you don't mind. I'd like to hear what you think!

I hear that.  Got some rather questionable links while trying to research my fling np memory issue.   And clear your google history.  "honey, why are searching for flings"  although if she thought it was the fling.com version she would not use the word "honey"

Steve,
Seems to work pretty good.  If you used something like Trayit to hide it while running would probably meet your needs for testtags copy and fling.

Andrew

Man, have  I got the thing for you! Years ago I had a developer that was working for us to create a little app that would do just that. Just unzip this, it's a small exe file. You put the folder to look in and the file (wildcards should work) and the destination folder. You specifiy how often it should check. That's it! You can have it load from the startup folder or however you want to load it. It remembers the settings.

I totally forgot about that until you mentioned it. Thanks for reminding me! Let me know how it goes if any of you decide to use it.

You can see how old it is! I had another one he made me that moved instead of copied. I tried it when I got home, at first it didn't like the location it was started from, but once I copied it into the webfiles folder, it started working. I have Fling doing all of the WD uploads to two sites now and it works flawlessly so far. It's also sending the VWS wflash files to daculaweather. I basically turned off the ftp in WD.
