Servers can be saved using server manager. This allows you to configure options specific to a server which will be used when connecting to that server. This dialog can be accessed from the File menu.
To connect to a saved server, click the Connect button in the main toolbar, then choose the server to which to connect.
Local / Remote Startup Directory - If a local startup directory is specified, the local view panel will switch to that directory when this server is first connected. Similarly, if a remote directory is specified, QuantumFTP will switch to that directory on connection. To disable this functionality, leave the field blank.
Anonymous Login – Some servers allow connections without requiring a password. If the server allows this, Anonymous is used for the username and the email address specified in the Preferences section is used as the password.
Connection Mode - Usually passive mode can be used for file transfer, but this occasionally causes problems for users behind a firewall. Switch to active mode to solve this.
Transfer Type – This should be left set to Auto unless you experience problems with file transfers.
Default Action – Determines the default action to take when a file exists.
Use MLSD if available – MLSD is a format for listing directories. This feature is only used if the server supports MLSD and should be left enabled unless directory listings are unreadable.
Resume transfers when available – This should be left enabled unless files are corrupted after resuming.
