Included is an example to transfer files/directories to multiple computers using different accounts. Great for administrators.

smb? cifs? Is this using smb or cifs as an underlying protocol for the transfer? I find both of these protocols to have painful latency and inherent slowness. I am looking for a module that has this functionality but which works fast. I guess with this module the windows user features for permissions is achieved.

Thanks, Luke

not working completely well though... Hi,

I think this is a useful contribution, though I ran in some problem. Especially when copying directories. The following solves that:

# Create the destination dir if its not there.
#if not os.path.exists(dest_dir):
#    os.makedirs(dest_dir)
#else:
#    # Create a directory anyway if file exists so as to raise an error.
#     if not os.path.isdir(dest_dir):
#         os.makedirs(dest_dir)

if move:
    if os.path.isdir(source):
        shutil.copytree(source, destdir)
        shutil.rmtree(source)
    elif os.path.isfile(source):
        shutil.move(source, dest_dir)
    else:
        raise AssertionError, '%s is neither a file nor directory' % (source)
else:
    if os.path.isdir(source):
        shutil.copytree(source, dest_dir)
    elif os.path.isfile(source):
        shutil.copy(source, dest_dir)
    else:
        raise AssertionError, '%s is neither a file nor directory' % (source)

cheers,
