Using tramp / dired-mode to access a remote shared Centos linux server -- e.g.,
(find-file "/ssh:email@example.com:/home/lawlist/") -- I have not been able to subsequently copy files / directories recursively from the remote server to the local machine with
dired-do-copy. The variable
dired-recursive-copies is set to
always -- i.e.,
(setq dired-recursive-copies 'always).
What happens is that the directory selected gets copied from the remote to the local, but nothing inside the directory gets copied over -- i.e., an empty folder is created on the local machine (which has the name of the folder that was copied), but nothing else happens.
How, please, can files / folders be copied recursively from the remote server to the local machine using
EDIT (October 16, 2014): An Emacs bug report regarding this issue has been submitted --
