#3857 new Feature request

1 Click Putty Integration (SSH client integration)

Like WINSCP, when connected to a SFTP site, a menu item should have an option to launch putty. It would be great if that could log you in but I'm fine with it connecting and prompting for your password. This would eliminate to the need to manage sites on putty and filezilla.

The goal is to open up a terminal with current account.

In Windows, it should use Putty or Kitty.
In Linux & Mac, it should just open up the built-in terminal.

  • In the GUI, it could be a contextual menu "Open a terminal window from here"
  • Even better would be to take you to the same directory as you are now in FileZilla
  • This would work in SSH but not plain FTP.

WinSCP uses CTRL-P to open Putty. Since FileZilla is cross-platform, maybe it should be something more generic like CTRL-T for Terminal.

Being a FileZilla and PuTTY user, I add my vote : +1 ! It would be very nice to be able to launch a PuTTY session on fly from FileZilla.
