Re: Support for FTP HOST Command (RFC 7151)

OK, I have implemented optional use of HOST command.

I have sent you an email with a development version of WinSCP to address you have used to register on this forum.

Re: Support for FTP HOST Command (RFC 7151)

I can't think of a reason for pre-login commands other than HOST.

For what it's worth, here are screenshots from FTP Voyager and Beyond Compare which shows how they implemented an on/off option for the HOST command:

Just a thought, but what a few FTP clients have been doing is adding an option to send the HOST command before logging in, or providing support for sending custom pre-login commands. For example, in WinSCP's Advanced Site Settings, you could modify the Protocol Options page to add another text box for pre-login commands, or add you could an On/Off option to send a HOST command before logging in.

Thanks for your suggestion. Do you know of any other use for "pre-login" commands, apart from HOST?

Re: Support for FTP HOST Command (RFC 7151)

It's more difficult to implement that I original hoped. This requires FEAT command to be send before authentication, so that HOST support is detected.

Re: Support for FTP HOST Command (RFC 7151)

Do you have a server that supports this, that I can use to test this against?

Support for FTP HOST Command (RFC 7151)

Now that RFC 7151 has been published, (which defines the FTP HOST command), can WinSCP add support for it?

See https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7151 for details.

Thanks!
