Hi, Phil
I've looked at your code, it's very helpful.
I am not familiar with Twisted,
is it possible for you to show some code of
local -> remote and directory listings ?

I am very interested in directory listings, specially
in a Windows<->linux environment. I want to have something
like FileZilla, but I can program. More specific, the actual
location of files is on linux harddisk, the harddisk is
shared to Windows by Samba, from Windows, I want to know
the local path on linux. For example, X:\a_file.txt on Windows,
I want to get local path on linux, something like /home/a_file.txt.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards.
