I think you need to login via SSH (and not ftp)

That may be correct answer. Custom commands are supported for SCP and SFTP (via secondary shell session) only.

Also you need to have the archive file selected on the remove file panel.

My server supports only FTP connections,if i select SCP/SFTP it does't allow me login.
Is there a way to unTar in FTP mode of connection?

Generally no. Unless your FTP server supports SITE EXEC command (or similar).
