FileZilla Server Setting or Detection

Description

I am requesting a capability for the FileZilla Client
that was actually working (maybe not by design) in
Version 2.2.8b. I use FileZilla Client to maintain a
z/OS system that has MVS files and Unix files. In
previous versions the client would auto-detect the type
of server based upon the default directory that I set
up the the site in the Site Manager. In later releases,
this capability is no longer available and I can NOT
use the FileZilla client to maintain my Unix files.
This is the majority of my work! I am requesting this
type of functionality (again), OR the ability to
specify the type of server in the Site Properties.

This is a GREAT product, but I am forced to use earlier
versions of the client(or a different product) to
perform my maintenance tasks.

Also, if the capability to specify servers is provided,
I'd like to propose adding z/VM to the list. I still
maintain files in VM/CMS as well. Other products offer
this functionality (I've had to use WS_FTP Pro, or FTP
from VM/CMS to the FileZilla Server on my desktop.

Thanks for a great product. I hope you can come up with
a new/improved version that I can use.
