Currently, users are able to choose what port to
connect for FTP sessions but not for SFTP sessions.
This is an important feature, especially when
dealing with SSH/SFTP because it is common to use
non-standard ports for in NAT'ed envrionments, etc.
Recommendation: include a "port" input text box in
the SFTP connection dialog box.

    Hi. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I also think that it would be a good idea to be able to choose
    which port to connect to when starting an SFTP connection.
    Also, I do not think that such a feature would be difficult to
    implement. This feature may, as a matter of fact, be included
    in our next version. Although we are presently looking into
    other issues, I am sure that myself, or at least one of us, will
    be able to spend time looking into adding this feature ASAP.

    On another note, why was this not put in the section for
    feature requests? I for one would prefer that feature requests
    be placed in the section that was created for feature
    requests. This is nothing serious, I'm just wondering why this
    was put in the section for bug reports.
