Is there a way to schedule/automate a FTPS task in FileZilla client? My requirement is to retrieve a particular file on a weekly basis.
Please let me know if such a feature exists.

Thanks in advance

Found command line syntax on the wiki. Should have checked there first before posting.
I am using FileZilla client version 3.0.2.1 and tried the following command:

filezilla.exe -overwrite -d ftps://usrname:pwd@ftpsite/sourcepath destinationpath -t filename

I get a popup with message "unknown option overwrite". Actually i get the same message for options 's', 'd' as well. After clicking OK i see another popup with message "Usage: FileZilla [/h] [--verbose]". and after click OK here, the clinet window opens.

Any help on how to use the command.

Thanks in advance.

FileZilla 3 doesn't support any commandline arguments yet.

Thanks for the quick response. Can we expect the command line feature anytime soon?

Is there a timeline or roadmap of when command line options will be supported in 3?

So it has been 1 year. Any luck with the automation of uploading/downloading?

I won't implement any options to start transfers like I did in FileZilla 2. Adding those to 2.x was a big mistake, people were using FileZilla in a way it hasn't been designed for. For automated transfers, people should (wish: have) to use a commandline client.

So what command line ftp programs would you recommend ? I need one that does FTP over SSL and find that MoveIt doesn't seem to work as well as the FileZilla does. I can access the site with FileZilla just fine but can't get MoveIt to do the same thing from the command line. Thanks.

I have spent over a year trying to figure out how to do threaded, automated and incremental backups to my ftp server. Filezilla does the first two, but not the third.

Are there any command line threaded FTP solutions for windows? My server is capped at 100'ish speeds per thread. Filezilla's 10 thread system is the only thing I know that can overcome that limitation.

Momma, people were using my program for automation! *crys*. People should have to suffer and use a command line program.
that's still funny.

FileZilla cannot do automated transfers (well, version 2 could, but it's not supported anymore).

The right tool for the right job. FileZilla 3 is not meant to be used like that. Use WinSCP if it bugs you.

I think it's really a pity that filezilla 3.x doesn't support commandline arguments to upload multiple files automated. I changed the source of version 2 to upload whole directories in the background or at night and it worked fine and smooth. Filezilla is just the fastest multithreaded FTP-Client for Windows I know, and this feature is much asked for here (I guess the view-count of over 4500 of this post tells a lot). So I guess it would make many people happy to have it. I understand that Filezilla Client is a "GUI-based" application, but even such a programm can work in the background (for example "hide" in the system-tray - as it is able to do now).

Perhaps this might be a feature to go for in a new subversion 3.x or 4.0?
