When starting Filezilla sftp sessions using command-line, a feature to force Filezilla to interactively prompt in dialog for user and/or password at start. This would be very usefull when starting Filezilla connections from other applications/Infrastructure databases. If for security reasons, you do NOT want to supply the password on the command line or in a site definition.
Currently (v188.8.131.52) Filezilla command-line sftp, if user/password i omitted, Filezilla just tries with empty fields (or anonymous?)
"C:\Program Files\FileZilla Client\filezilla.exe" sftp://hostname:22
Filezilla prompts interactively in dialog for user and password.
"C:\Program Files\FileZilla Client\filezilla.exe" sftp://root@hostname
Filezilla prompts interactively in dialog for password.
1a. Change default connection option to "Interactive" when user and/or password is NOT in command-line
1b. Add argument (ex "-i" for interactive) that force Filezilla to interactively prompt for user/password. (Any command/line supplied user/password could be entered as suggestion)
2. Add the same functionality for FTP
