Save password til the end of FileZilla session

#1 Post by s4fz » 2019-08-19 23:53

With DUO this option essentially does not work no matter if you marked the appropriate radiobutton (to save the password). DUO still pushes for passwords and Filezilla asks fort hem 500 times per day

Dual authentication used by some organizations. When you use not just the password, but password+ comma + word "push" + install app called DUO + get notification on your phone + respond on it tapping on 3 different places on the screen and only then after your swearing your transfer starts. There exist a bug in Filezilla clearly here because it keep asking for passwords despite you clicked on the option to remember password till the end of session

That's the whole point of two-factor authentication, to be as annoying as possible.

Appreciate your black sense of humor :) but in addition to 100 times per year Filezilla updates i would appreciate this bug of being fixed

Every time a new connection is established, the client needs to authenticate with the server. If the server requires 2FA, then you need to enter the second factor. No way around this.

Am i wrong that you have not tried and have no clue about 2FA? The FZ harass with asking passwords 1000 times per day despite the Save Password in FZ was applied every time the window asking for passwords appears. The same password you have to do all the time on and on and on. THIS IS A BUG IN FZ not in any other place. FZ has to use saved password and respond on request for password automatically by itself. You have to do the password ones per session not 1000 times
