SSH Run Commands

#1 Post by jpdoherty » 2019-10-09 09:34

Hi,

I'm trying to remove the Bitnami Banner from my website and I need to run a unique command, but the 'Enter Custom Command' option is greyed out. I'm connected via SSH and from reading the FAQs i think i should be able to run a custom command, what have i got wrong?

Thanks,

You are actually connected to the server's SFTP subsystem, as FileZilla only supports SFTP (not the complete SSH2). In particular, there is no remote shell support. You need to use a true SSH client, like PuTTY (WinSCP should also work).

The menu option is only for sending custom FTP commands to FTP servers. But SFTP does not have that capability.

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.
All FileZilla products fully support IPv6. http://worldipv6launch.org
