I like to recommended an new function to FileZilla.

The new function is "auto files download".

Meaning the FileZilla will do every few minutes a connect to "pre set" FTP site and will start transfer all files.
In this mode, the PC directory will have all the FTP files automatically. The FileZilla will be in "resume" setting, so on the HD will be added only on set of the new files.

Best regards
Nissim Zur

I don't think this will come, FileZilla is designed to be operated by a human.

You could use a commandline FTP client and cron/Windows task scheduler.

We all know FileZilla is the greatest file transfer program ever!

We also know that FileZilla requires human use.

We also know that the wonderful FileZilla developer(s) are not going to provide a batch interface.

However, how about responding to the beggars (like me) that would love to be able to understand how to relate FileZilla terminology with Windows cmd.exe FTP command terminology?

After reading the Microsoft website numerous times I just throw my hands up in frustration. I'm getting too old for this technical stuff I guess. More likely, it's just the Microsoft obfuscation they create whenever they would prefer that you use a different product where they make you pay an arm and a leg.

I would just like a translation between the FileZilla:
Local Site:
Remote Site:
etc.

and the Windows console commands:

open computer [port]
put
etc.

that are required to accomplish the same file upload task to the server from a local PC.

I had it working at one time but it no longer works. I've spent days on this without success.

P.S. Be careful when your age approaches 60. The gitup and go has gotup and went.

Thanks for your help.

Windows FTP.exe? ({} means optional)

Connect to a server: open servername_or_ip {port}

servername_or_ip is what you would type into the FileZilla hostname field;
port is the server port, you need to specify only if not default (21);

You will be asked for username and password then. The logon process is complete.

Set the local directory: lcd path

Get a directory listing: dir {spec}
spec means you can enter something like 'dir *.exe';

Change directories on server: cd dirname

Download a file from server dir to local dir: get filename

Download many files: mget filespec

Upload a file from local dir to server dir: put filename

Upload many files: mput filespec

Logout from server: close

Logout and quit FTP.exe: quit / bye

Sample script for uploading one text file:
Code:
open ftp.example.com
user1
password1
lcd c:\upload
cd /pub/incoming
ascii
put foobar.txt
quit


Sample script for downloading all zip files:
Code:
prompt
open ftp.example.com
user1
password1
lcd c:\download
cd /pub
binary
mget *.zip
quit


Note 1: Filenames, dirnames and paths with spaces must be enclosed in double quotes, e. g. "C:\Program Files".
Note 2: The prompt command switches the annoying confirmation prompts off. Required for batch mode with mget, mput.
Note 3: FTP.exe does not support encrypted FTP of any kind, SFTP. And it doesn't support Passive mode.

Hello

Ok, FileZilla is for human use only. (why?)
Is it possible to get features: scheduling of jobs, in a future?

I'm biased. I'm a human too so I've lost my objectivity :P

I'm planning on writing a commandline client. It however would depend on the upcoming wxWidgets 3.0 which is still quite some time away.

That sounds good :) I'm waiting for this moment.

FTP Voyager isn't so cool :( but it has scheduling...
