Default Enhancement suggestions

Please consider these enhancement suggestions for FlashFXP:

1) Command-line interface support for automation
purposes. Mainly, I'd like to upload a file to my web
host and overwrite what is there automatically. Right
now it's manual because I have to login, upload, say
OK to overwrite, and logout (I *could* stay connected
for extended periods, but it's not good etiquette).

2) Move the "FTP | On Transfer Complete | Show
Confirmation" option to a global FXP option. Right
now it's tedious because I have to go into "FTP | On
Transfer Complete" twice.

3) On "Quick Connect", if the password is incorrect,
prompt again for a different password instead of
falling back out.

4) While connected to a site configured in the site
manager, it would be nice to be able to right-click on
the local or remote pane and say "make this the
default directory for this site next time".

5) I ran into a performance problem once where I had
4-5 60MB .exe's in a directory in the local view and
FXP's view to the files was somehow forcing a scan by
my antivirus software which was extremely slow. It
would be nice if FXP didn't open the EXE's (I assume
it must be) so as not to trigger antivirus on-demand
scanning.

6) A native Linux version? I'd pay for one.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks,

John

already possible by creating and save desired file in a queue file

that's problem with your antivirus, not flashfxp.

Read this. Although isn't related with a native version, it'll give you a tip about the Linux version.

Not exactly. I still get prompted whether to overwrite the file and this does not seem to be override-able on a case by case basis. Also, command-line support does not exist.

that's problem with your antivirus, not flashfxp.
My antivirus software is doing its job when it scans the EXE files before allowing them to be opened. Obviously, this takes time with large files. FlashFXP should not have to open the EXE files (to get version#, I don't know - what is it doing?) while browsing directories. Whatever the reason the EXE files are being open()ed, this should be an option or should be removed.

The local shell browser uses the file associations to extract the proper file icon, for exe files the windows shell tries to extract the icon directly from the file. this can be said for all shell browsers interfaces.
