No, there is no description. The format is somewhat self-explanatory though.

Create any entry in the Site Manager with the desired attributes and export it, see how it looks like.

I dont know which attribute (and my filezilla is danish):

This is how they entries looks like:

....
....
<Server>
<Host>ftp.xxxxxx.dk</Host>
<Port>21</Port>
<Protocol>0</Protocol>
<Type>0</Type>
<User>mo-odense</User>
<Pass>xxxxx</Pass>
<Logontype>1</Logontype>
<TimezoneOffset>0</TimezoneOffset>
<PasvMode>MODE_DEFAULT</PasvMode>
<MaximumMultipleConnections>0</MaximumMultipleConnections>
<EncodingType>Auto</EncodingType> - I suspect that this is the one, but what are the other options ? I have tried ti change it and the reexport, but no change in the xml file.
<BypassProxy>0</BypassProxy>
<Name>Odense Kommune</Name>
<Comments />
<LocalDir />
<RemoteDir />
<SyncBrowsing>0</SyncBrowsing>
<DirectoryComparison>0</DirectoryComparison>Odense Kommune
</Server>
....
....

Code: Select all

<Protocol>0</Protocol>
means "Use protocol FTP, try FTP over TLS, use plain FTP if not available".




Code: Select all

<Protocol>6</Protocol>
means "Use protocol FTP, force insecure plain FTP".


EncodingType is transfer encoding of the data stream, something completely different.

Thanks :-)

My Danish FZ does save a zero in the attribute all the time , no matter if I choose "Use protocol FTP, force insecure plain FTP".
The export still says 0 in protocol.

Now know which way to go

I checked, set one entry in Site Manager to Encryption: Plain FTP, pressed OK (to save it), re-opened it and exported to a file (by right clicking - Export...). The result: protocol is 6 instead of 0.

Note: Please ignore the "Last Server" entry in FileZilla.xml, if any. It holds information about the last server FileZilla was connected to, and does NOT change even if the Site Manager entry gets modified later.
