#4426 closed Feature request (rejected)

allow unc paths

Currently in order to get a unc path saved for a user's home directory I have to:

  1. create/save user with generic/normal path
  2. shutdown filezilla server service
  3. change filezilla server.xml in notepad (alter home path to unc for new user) and resave
  4. start service

The GUI server admin client doesn't seem to allow unc pathing, (locks up, freezes) and it would be nice if it could allow. If this is due to the GUI having to parse dir structure for the tree view, and this in turn causes issues with a unc path -- maybe as a first step add a feature with just a basic field to allow a unc path and not try to parse through it. As a sysadmin, I know my paths, and it would be nice to be able to paste one in without having to stop service and manually edit the xml.
