Cannot open PuTTY in FTP

Hi,

Whenever I hit the "Open session in PuTTY" button when connected to an FTP site, the PuTTY windows opens, but never shows the prompt, it just freezes. I hit Enter but the cursor doesn't move or even blink, kind of no connection established.

Contrarywise, PuTTY opens flawlessly on sftp sites, as expected.

Could you check opening PuTTY on FTP sites?


Blessings,

Bar.

Re: Cannot open PuTTY in FTP

It is probably because the WinSCP passes its session info to PuTTY, including the FTP port, what PuTTY cannot handle obviously. BTW, What would you expect the "Open in PuTTY" do for FTP? I suppose that there won't be a SSH server running, otherwise you won't use FTP, hence fallback to default SSH port 22 is not a solution. Option may be to ask PuTTY to connect via telnet for FTP sessions. What do you think?

Hi,

I think your suggestion is the most logical expected behaviour, that is, politely asking the user if s/he wants to open a Telnet session in PuTTY if currently working on an FTP site in WinSCP.

I will look forward to this functionality in an upcoming release. Keep the good work!
Thank you.

Blessings,

Bar.
