Copy/Paste from File Explorer

Post by TSPlusSMD » Fri Aug 31, 2018 12:28 pm

I publish File Explorer. If I connect with the .connect file I can copy and paste files from the host to my client. If I connect via the Web (HTML5) I can't.

Is there a way to get copy/paste to work when using the Web and HTML5? No matter where I am I want to be able to log in to the TSPlus Server, run File Explorer and copy/paste files the the computer I am connecting with.

If there is no way to get copy/paste to work how do remote users copy files from the server?

it is technically not doable by browser skills due browsers sand-box environment.
HTML5 client is based on pure HTML/JavaScript without any extra plugins and like any other HTML page that you open in browser it is restricted by security rules of browser you use. You get feeling that you use "native" client but that is just simulated visualization, you still stay inside browsers sand-box.

Copying files is only possible as described here. ... e-transfer

If you need copy/pasting files implicitly via system clipboard then use please native client!
