Change Settings for an FTP or SFTP Site

Use the Site Properties dialog box to configure how the client behaves when connecting and interacting with a particular remote site.

To modify the settings for a particular site

  1. Start the FTP Client.

    This opens the Connect to FTP Site dialog box. (If the FTP Client is already running and this dialog box is not open, go to Connection > Connect.)

  2. From the Connect to FTP Site dialog box, select a site.

  3. Click the Properties button.

    NOTE:

    • If you are already connected to a site, from the Connection menu, choose Site Properties.

    • Some changes you make using the Site > > Properties dialog box when connected will not take effect until the next time you connect to the site.
