Starting filezilla with command line parameters

#1 Post by cparr » 2004-03-08 11:44

Hi!

How can I start filezilla from a link to automatically connect to a given Site?

I've got 2 sites which I want to start from seperate links.

Please help.

Thanks.

If with link you mean shortcut, try this:

# filezilla.exe user:pass@host

example:

C:\Progra~1\FileZilla\filezilla.exe foo:bar@site.com

Thanks. But can I specify my password? Or how can I access a site saved in my site list?

Thanks.

Louwrens showed you how to specify password (filezilla.exe user:pass@host)
Read more about the commandline arguments on http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/cmdline.htm. (Maybe you could add this to the FAQ botg?)

I don't think this is possible, atleast I've never heard of it and the above site I linked to does not mention it..

Commandline options for FileZilla Server

#6 Post by JohnHenryMiller » 2004-03-28 20:51

What are the commandline options for starting up the FileZilla FTP server? I would like to start it up automatically without having to answer "Yes".

The most important server commands are /start and /stop
Iirc there's also /install and /uninstall.

Another important switch is /compat, this forces the server to not run as system service but as normal application, like under Win9x based systems.

I'd love to be able to select one of my saved sites from the command line parameters. For example, if one of my saved sites is example.com, it would be extremely useful to be able to start filezilla with example.com as a command line paramter and it use the saved site details. For example:

filezilla example.com

Currently this will simply attempt to login to example.com as anonymous. Any chance that you could set it up to first check if example.com is a saved site, and if found use that profile?
