Pathstyle support for S3 compatible API

#1 Post by xrkr » 2021-03-26 05:55

Hi All,

I was wondering if Filezilla pro has support for Path style access for Amazon S3 API or S3 Compatible API. Can anybody confirm?

No. If your third-party storage were S3 compatible it would support host-base access.

Yes it is s3 compatible API.
Sorry for my ignorance, What is host-based access?

The preferred way to talk to S3. Amazon is deprecating path-style access.

Hi

It may be that Amazon is deprecating path-style access on their servers. However, S3 is now a widely used API and can be self-hosted (with e.g. MinIO). In my opinion, FileZilla S3 is too focused on Amazon. Entering alternative endpoints is a pain and the missing support for path style access makes it much harder to use for self-hosted servers. I personally purchased the pro version to use with a local MinIO server, but quickly found that the FileZilla S3 support is simply too weak. I am now using the free alternative CyberDuck which has wider support. Other tools, like tntdrive.com, also support both Amazon and alternative endpoints (with either access style).

I hope that you will consider upgrading the S3 implementation in the future.

S3 is a proprietary protocol by Amazon. Any third-party provider who claims to be S3 compatible needs to implement the entire S3 API.
