I used to use File Sharing on my mac pro so I could connect to it from work. The problem is, browsing my Mac Pro in the Finder from work is PAINFULLY slow and often times it will hang up the Finder for minutes at a time, which was really annoying. Just today, I decided to use Panic's Transmit app to connect to my Mac Pro via SFTP and browsing and copying is a LOT faster. The Finder told me 10 hours to copy 200MB but, Transmit said only 3 hours.... hmm. Also, when I'm browsing my Mac with Transmit, it's blazing fast and even huge lists pop right up immediately. This is the way to go for me but, why is the Finder so slow when using remote file access?
