#3016 closed Feature request

QUIT disconnect checkbox option

Request for "QUIT"-Disconnect Option:

Description: A check box option (or a seperate command) to invoke a "QUIT" command before or on disconnect.

Justification: Currently, when disconnecting or closing the FileZilla Client Application, there is no "hand-shaking" between the server and client upon disconnection.

If a "QUIT" command option-upon-close is invoked, (or if a user manually enters the "QUIT" command in the custom commands field) it communicates with the server that the connection is being closed. In addition, various servers may send the client various FTP session stats regarding file transfers, total files transfered and total bytes uploaded or downloaded.

In closing, if the QUIT command is added, the FileZilla client would not terminate the connection before receiving the overall final stats from the server before disconnecting.

Thanks for providing a great FTP Client App.
(Nice Job!)

Thanks for your interest regarding this request.

Just closing the connection has the same effect as sending the ABOR command followed by the QUIT command. Your server should treat them identically.
It says so in the FTP specifications.

Hello Tim,

Thank you for responding.
At this time, I cannot seem to get the results that I am seeking. The only way that I am aware of, is using manually invoking the QUIT command from the custom commands field within FileZilla.

Attached, please find a .zip file with 3 adobe snap shots that describes my situation. Hopefully, these examples will be more informative.

Thanks for your help. It is humbly appreciated.
