How to remove entries from quick connect list?

#1 Post by 8Patio » 2010-07-05 23:19

Hello all,
Im using version 3.3.2.1 and I was wondering if I can individually remove IPs from the quick connect list? I always use this feature to connect so I dont have to remember/retype all the passwords for my websites. But now its gotten to the point where I have so many entries in that list from password and server changes that I often click on the outdated entry and wonder why Im not connecting. I can see the "clear quick connect" feature but I dont want to completely clear it, just the ones that are outdated. Thanks for any tips.

Not possible. If you want full control over the stored addresses, use the site manager.

I have the same issue. I have made errors when initially setting up web host addresses and I want to get the bad ones out of the 'quick connect'. There should be a way to delete these unwanted addresses.

Manually in the XML. But if you frequently connect to some sites, use the bloody Site Manager. Can't be that hard.

It is possible, but it depends on the OS. See the list of OSes below to determine the location of the recentservers.xml file. Edit this file and remove the <Server> to </Server> lines that should be removed. Care should be taken to remove only what is necessary.


*NIX and Mac: ~/.config/filezilla

Windows: %APPDATA%\FileZilla

Any reason for necroposting into a ten years old topic?

[Closing] now.
