|RE: [dsdp-tm-dev] Ftp connection & extending RSE|
(1) FTP with passive mode through port forwarding (tunnel):
The FTP protocol is designed to open a separate data connection
for downloads or directory retrievals. With passive mode, that additional
connection won't go through your tunnel so it cannot work.
Have you ever tried this with a different FTP client than RSE? I'm not
an FTP expert myself, and I'd suggest you try getting that scenario
working with other tools first.
I'm not sure but it might be your scenario is actually what people call
FTPS (FTP-over-SSHtunnel) and I don't think you can get this with
RSE today. Look out for other tools.
The concrete ClassCastException you mention is already fixed:
was fixed in TM 2.0.2, I found it by searching bugzilla for
bugs in DSDP-TM with comment
"cannot be cast to org.eclipse.rse.subsystems.files.core.subsystems.IRemoteFile"
(2) Sftp is that I cannot view files starting with a dot ".".
Use Window : Preferences : Remote Systems : Files
--> Enable "Show Hidden Files"
(3) Your extension:
I don't quite understand why you need your own plugin for this since RSE should
do it out of the box; but anyways, when it runs in your debuggee but does not
run properly when exported that doesn't have to do anything with the TM / RSE
project. You might want to ask for help one of the eclipse platform newsgoups.
