Prompt for Username

At University of Sussex we would like to use FileZilla to
give access to secure FTP from all our open-access
PCs running Windows 2000.

The students use mandatory profiles and the program
will be run from a NetWare server.

My problem is that we add a number of sites to the FTP
client, each site prompting for both username and

I have been unable to get FileZilla to save the sites in
sitemanager unless a username is added - then, of
course, all the users are presented with the same

Is there anyway of using a wildcard to force FileZilla to
prompt for username whether using the SiteManager or
the button on the Toolbar?

Also, could you add Tooltips to the Shortcut Bar??

Thank you

As this isn't supported in FZ at the moment, this is now
more a feature request than a support request - moved.

I'd just like to chime in and ask for the "username prompt" feature as well. It really makes a difference in userlab type settings where there are pre-defined sites, but multiple different users will be connecting.

This has been requested already, deleting this feature request. Please see the following tracker item:
[ 617076 ] dont require username in site manager

And if you still want to request tooltips in the shortcut bar (whatever that might mean), please file a new feature request if there isn't one there yet. Due to the age of this request, it might already be implemented. So please check that before, thanks.
