The app is a file transfer/managing piece of software that I don't have the code to nor do I have any control over changing. Basically it allows me to select a file I want from a server and it allows me to select a location I want to put it. Its probably using a ftp protocol is my guess. When I select a location on the linux box the download takes just 7 minutes. When I select a location on the windows box it takes 14 minutes. Did I mention earlier that the app is residing on the linux box.
So.... I was hoping to find a way to select a download location on the windows box and have the app download directly to it without having to take 2x the download time. Something in the app doesn't like the looks of the samba connection not being a physical local drive on the linux box.
