- To add a new entry to the Server List, enter the server information in the
main window, test that it connects, and click the Add button on the Server
- To modify an entry in the Server List, select and modify it, and click the
Add button again.

according to its configuration in the Settings window.

mouse button context menu.
- To search for files or to calculate directory sizes, select the required
directories and use the right mouse button context menu option.
- Double-clicking a search result entry selects the file, and thus opens the
corresponding directory in the program GUI.

l - Activates the local path field
r - Activates the remote path field
, - Opens the parent directory on the local file list
. - Opens the parent directory on the remote file list
o - Cycles the protocol option

Program settings are found in the program's pull-down menu and they will be
saved to the ENVARC:Hollywood/com.wmhost.jpv.rnoxfer file.
The "Settings -> Save" pull-down menu option also saves the server list
entries, the selected server, and open states of individual windows.
There is also an advanced configuration file (advanced.conf), which is used
to pass custom curl options to the program. Check the provided example file
for more information.
