#572 Need Field to Connect to Specific FTP Directory


Some FTP sites require that you connect to a sub directory

for instance you may connect to ftp.abc.com

but you need to connect to a specific subdirectory, say

There is no way to specify the particular subdirectory and therefore it does not connect. The server wont let users connect to the root of the FTP directory.

FTP clients have this ability to put the exact directory in another field other than the ftp server field

Unfortunately you can't connect and then navigate to this specific directory.

    Indeed. We're in "string freeze" mode until the final 0.8 release, but I'll see what I can do so users can specify a remote directory in the "FTP host" field.
