Omni Sync Server with Transmit (Panic Software) [A: bug in Transmit. See thread.] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
P.S. — To be clear, the redirected URL isn't meant to be a secret or anything. We just try to encourage people to use the non-redirected URL because that's the URL that will work no matter how we migrate accounts around. But in cases where a tool doesn't correctly handle web redirects, obviously you'll have to enter the redirected URL even though it might break in the future.
Thanks to take time to explain!

We've discussed the issue with them; they plan to update the version of that framework which Transmit uses eventually, but we don't know when that will be. In the meantime, please let them know you encountered this problem so it stays on their radar screen.

In the vast majority of cases, we want folks using the generic URL, not the one that points at a specific server. When we need to re-balance server populations in the future, anything that depends on reaching the account on that server will break.

Folks encountering this issue can contact and we'll help them out.
Thanks Ken, it works perfect

(WebDAV is the web's standard http protocol, with some extra extensions to cover other common file operations like renaming and locking files.)
