Reopening -

Can we please do it for SSH connections? I think SSH protocol fully supports it.

There can be some detection logic which can enable this option if server side supports it.

Can you provide information about this standard? I personally are not aware of this feature using SFTP or SCP.

All I know is copying compressed files to a server and then use an SSH client, connect to the server, and manually use a program to uncompress the archive.

This is not a standard. I think he's asking for FileZilla to also function as a remote SSH management workstation with internal scripts.

Sudhaker, please know that SFTP does not open up a normal BASH/KSH/CSH shell. It runs "SFTP" with is a separate shell, and has specific commands inside. It would not be appropriate for FZ to use SSH+BASH (etc), because there is not a standard receiver for files, and user environment, aliases, etc would regularly interfere with normal transfer functions.

Since ticket #3870 was WONTFIX, I recommend the same for this ticket.
