TS Net for Indy vs Business

Hey,

Yes, we found that page as well. The problem is that even though the page
lists features available to each license, there is no list of commands and
functions per license. For example, it says that public key authentication
is only available to business license holders, so we'd assume that if we
call tsNetUploadFileSync passing a username and password as an SFTP URL,
should work but it doesn't. Then we'd look into the docs and see that we
can pass a settings array with username and password which also doesn't
work.

When I say "doesn't work", I don't mean it is buggy, I mean it returns an
error saying the external is unlicensed. Which will probably make me
fallback to using shell commands to scp/sftp/rsync or whatever I need to
make file transfers.

This "escalation of features" for file transfers based on your license for
me is cumbersome as I am more prone to use other solutions than stay inside
LC but this is a whole different thread.

What I think would be useful and not disruptive to HQ business model is
more info about this license limitations inside the LC dictionary. When you
look at a given entry there, you don't see this info.

PS: It has been a while hasn't it?
