Due to my daily work I need to deal with Vpn files and folder a lot and Vpns can be very slow. The server side settings is not something I can change, it is the company set the rules and the servers. To work as fast and efficient as possible I always try to find the best way to deal with Vpn.
So far the ones I have tried that are slow or can not deal with the Vpn as good as I anticipate.
(with Supercopier, Fastcopy, standard windows file copy)
Xyplorer (which is my main file manager)
The one I prefer
Q-dir (free) + Fastcopy is the best way to deal with Vpns. Not the best solution but in my tests these two gave me less headaches and wait times compared to other options
Most of the time my main complaint is file folder refreshes, or speed of simple file related operations. For example once I open a Vpn folder sometimes clicking a file to select can be slow in one of those in slow managers category. The right clickcs gets even worse. Although Q-dir`s right click is not any faster than those in the slow lane, but overall Q-dir has provided better experience with Vpns.
It seems like there is nothing out there that is specifically optimized for Vpns or Ssh based file browsing
I thought that it might be good idea to open a topic to share tips and tricks regarding working wirt Vpns
