dear friends,

is the FileZilla XML - file sufficient (in every case) to start a connection to the server!?

in other words - if i copy the fileZilla XML - is this enough to enable a connection!?

or - can it be that some times - a extra file /(key ) is necessary!?

love to hear from you

First, Site Manager connections are in sitemamager.xml.
Second, trusted TLS certs are in trustedcerts.xml.
Third, trusted SFTP keys are stored in various places, like Registry on Windows or SSH system agent on *NIX.

Short answer: No, that one file is not enough in many cases.

You will get away with the configuration directory in most cases, except for SFTP, where trusted host keys might be stored externally.
