A novice user, I can connect successfully via SSH login from my
client Mac, using Vine Viewer 3.11, to my
server Mac, running Vine Server 3.0 as a system server. I can interact just fine with the server mac, including the following: I can select and copy files on the server (via the server screen’s “Finder\Edit\Copy”) and paste them to the client mac (via the client’s “Finder\Edit\Paste”).
Here’s my problem: I can select and copy a file on the client mac (via the Client mac’s “Finder\Edit\Copy”) but when I attempt to paste that file to the server’s window (via the server’s “Finder\Edit\Paste”) the server window freezes; ie, there’s no response when I click any area on the server screen. Any attempt to “refresh” the server screen fails. The “Connection List” shows that the connection still exists and is in good health. The only way I’ve been able to escape the freeze has been to disconnect, log back in again and not try to copy a file from the client to the server.
I can reproduce the problem regardless of whether the server’s firewall is on or off. The client mac’s firewall has always been off. So this doesn’t seem to be a firewall-based problem.
Q: Does Vine Viewer 3.11 support copy and paste of a file from the client to the server machine?
Q: My client mac has OS X 10.4.11; the server mac has OS X 10.6.4. Do I have to be running 10.6 on my client to obtain copying and pasting from the client to the server mac?
Q: What system services, if any, should be enabled on the client and server machines to enable copy and paste from client to server? On the server mac (only) I have enabled “Screen sharing” and “Remote login”.
Q: What are the Vine Viewer’s Connection\
Paste items for? Under what circumstances are they enabled? When should they be used? They don’t seem relevant to my problem but I may be totally wrong about that.
