Not in the same FZ window, no. You need to wait for FZ3.

And posting the same message in numerous forums is bad.

Using 3.3.5.1 now on my Mac OSX 10.6.6. I have two tabs opened and two connections to two different servers running, but I cannot seem to upload a file using one account/server while I am downloading/backing up another site at the same time. Seems like the file I wanted to upload in the second tab is queued after all the files I have queued to download. Is there a way to upload files to server a with account a AND upload files to server b from account b?

Wow, a new thread necromancy record, over five years, lol.

The queue is shared among all tabs. So what you want is not possible using one FileZilla instance. However, you can simply use a second instance of FileZilla for that.

thanks for the explanation boco. Will try and see how I can get Filezilla to open up twice - two instances - on my Mac. Not sure yet how.

OK, I found out how to start another Filezilla instance (second Filezilla) from the command line:

Code: Select all

$ cd /Applications/Filezilla.app/Contents/MacOs
$ ./Filezilla &
NB Should work on Macs and Linux boxes alike
