Smarter Duet uploads

I've been fighting all week with a remote system (200 miles or so away) that has something of a flaky Internet connection. I can VNC to the panels, and connect to the master with Studio, so I have full remote troubleshooting. My problem is that even if I make a tiny change, Studio insists on uploading all the .jar files for Duet, even though htey clearly haven't been altered. All it needs to send on a code change is the master .tkn and .src files. So, if for any reason, the uplaod gets interupted, I have to attempt the whole thing all over again. It just happened to me ten times in a row, getting 60-80% of the way, then failing. If it was only sending the files actually changed, those uploads would have been successful. Now I'm looking at a 4 hour minimum round-trip drive for a tiny program change, and it's extremely frustrating.

    I agree, having smarter uploads would help a great deal, as more and more of my projects start to fall into the: service-via-internet category.

    I haven't tried it, but is it possible to rename your .tkn file to "prog.tkn" and ftp it to the master? Or does the prog.tkn exist in a directory that's not accessible to ftp?

    No, the FTP client doesn't provide root access.

    Can you use the Send\Other method to just send the .tkn file to the master?

    Or will that break the java stuff?

    I haven't tried that with a Duet Master but use it frequently to make changes to programs, send the .tkn file to an installer for him to upload where the Master may not have internet connectivity.
