Default Retrive file by full path

It would be great if there are an option to have FlashFXP doing RETR with full path name. (much like what FlashGet doing now)

The reason why this is needed is for some FTP site, they have different account setting, one for browsing, and one for download :

For browsing account, the RETR command does not allowed, but you can do CWD/LIST.

For download account, the CWD/LIST command does not allowed, but you can do RETR with full path.

FlashFxp fails with download account, I hope there is a way do fix this. It would be great if there is an option to do this per site.

It would possibly require some special routines (getting dirs with subdirs eg), because it relies quite a bit on the info CWD and LIST supplies. Maybe there's a way to have it create complete queues, like bpftp does, with the browsing account and then have it migrate that queue over to the other.

The solution is pretty simple... There are a couple of ways of doing it, but the method I prefer is as follows:

Create two entries for the site in Site Manager. One for browsing, and one for downloading. Queue the files up you want from the browsing account, then disconnect. CTRL+A (highlight all), edit the queue, and change the site to the download account. Then just transfer!

Sorted.

EDIT: To be honest, I'm not sure if Flash would use the RETR method in this way. Just try it and see.

I'm pretty sure it won't work the way it's laid out now. It'll CWD and LIST regardless, so there's a good chance it won't work. The reason why it does these things is obviously to verify that the source exists.

How about doing SIZE before RETR, but not using CWD/LIST ? This would eaually work for making sure the file exists.

I understand this would be slower than doing CWD/LIST for a lot of files. So I think it is better to make it an option per site.
