command line parameters

#1 Post by louwrens » 2004-03-08 12:55

Is it possible to open filezilla with a command like:

filezilla.exe filezilla://user:pass@host

This is needed to use an url handler from a browser. Windows used to pass only the 'user:pass@host' as the parameters but since (at least) XP it won't anymore.

The reason i need this is because at the moment we manage 150 ftp sites at 6 different hosts with 10 different people. At the moment we have to look up every password from our system and c&p the password.

Another option is to generate a sitemanager list in XML but i don't understand the encryption method, and then we have to generate a new list everytime something changes or a site gets added.

I guess this would be a nice feature anywayz :)

FileZilla does support command line arguments in the form ftp://user:pass@host:port/path

I take back what i said before :)

See this post as a hint/trick/tip instead of a question.

When you add the following key to your registry:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00  

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\fzilla]  
"URL Protocol"="http://filezilla.sourceforge.net"  

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\fzilla\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files\\filezilla\\filezilla.exe,0"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\fzilla\shell]  

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\fzilla\shell\open]  

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\fzilla\shell\open\command]  
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\filezilla\\filezilla.exe \"%1"
You can open filezilla from your brower by typing: fzilla: ftp://user:pass@host

To open filezilla from a webpage use the following link:

<a href="fzilla: ftp://user:pass@host">foo</a>

succes!

default client ?

Cool !

Also, in the same idea, is it possible to make FileZilla be the default FTP client ?

(I mean : not using fzilla: but only ftp:)

Like Mozilla-Firefox can be the default browser for http:

Just change all instances of 'fzilla' with ftp and you'll be laughing.
(remember to backup the registry first so you can recover)

FileZilla command line options

#6 Post by JohnHenryMiller » 2004-03-28 20:53

What are the FileZilla Server command line options? I would like to startup the server automatically without having to answer "yes" 8)
