scp-client-style: preference variable

Default value: 0

By default, Epsilon runs the sftp program to perform all scp operations. To access very old ssh servers, it can instead use the provided epsilon-xfer-helper program over a secure link, if you first set things up. Set this variable to 0x1 to make Epsilon issue commands for the helper program, not sftp. With this setting, Epsilon will run a separate scp program each it has to copy a file.

If you have trouble viewing dired listings, you may have an older version of the sftp program; set this variable to 0x2 to have Epsilon use old-style sftp commands.

When you type an scp:// URL that doesn't end in a / character, Epsilon first checks to see if it's a directory. You can have Epsilon skip this check by setting the 0x8 bit. With this option, whenever you type a directory name, you must either end it with a / character to indicate it's a directory, or use the dired command instead of one of the other file-reading commands.

See the main SCP topic for details.
