#3282 closed Bug report

fzsftp uses PuTTy's settings.

Reported by: bugreports Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: bugreports, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


The fzsftp.exe bundled with the Windows binary of FileZilla uses the registry keys of PuTTy's Default Settings configuration.

If you have set a default hostname or IP address in PuTTY, FileZilla cannot connect. Also if you are trying to connect to server that only allows private key as authorization, you won't be able to connect in FileZilla. You'll need to set a key in the default settings of PuTTy.

These two programs dependencies needs to be split.

As for the private key part, use pageant.

Fixed in SVN.

Anyhow, you should misuse the default settings like that. (No idea why putty even allows a hostname in the default settings)
