Default switch user?

Hi guys,

Is it possible to switch user without disconnect from the server?

MS windows explorer has this feature( right click menu "login as..")

Regards,
1hui

Hello,

If the FTP server supports this without disconnecting then you could issue the following raw commands

REIN
USER <username>
PASS <password>

You could even make a custom command that sends these 3 commands so that it doesn't need to be entered each time.

hi,Bigstar

I had tried "REIN" ,

It doesn't work .

Will you add a "switch user" feature like windows explorer's "login as" in the future?

REIN is the command FTP servers use to login as another user without disconnecting, if that command doesn't work then the FTP server doesn't support it.

windows explorer could switch user convenient(even the FTP server doesn't support switch user without disconnecting).
It is very useful if you need to manage a FTP server with mulit user accounts.
you could choose some folders of the FTP server to check if the user account has the correct access right(such as upload files, modify files ).
If there is a "switch user" feature like "login as .."of windows explorer ,you don't need to connect and disconnect the server again and again.
Just make the work easier and save time

sorry for my poor English.

once again, like bigstar said, ftp server MUST support REIN command in order to switch user account without disconnecting.

how do you know sure that IE doesn't disconnect and reconnect with another user account?!

hi MxxCon

Sorry for my English again.I didn't explain it clearly.

I don't care if IE disconnect from the server when switch user.

IE could stay in the same folder after switch user,and it is very easy to swicth user.

I ask if flashfxp will have that feature.

I tried leapftp.It could switch user (disconnected and connect again to the server)easily.but after you switch user ,you went to the root folder not the folder before switch.

Each connection entry is considered unique based on the ip, port, and username, because the username changes the current directory information is not kept.

We will consider your suggestion for future versions of FlashFXP.
