Address Bar

The Address Bar offers the easiest way to connect to a new FTP server. Simply type (or paste from the clipboard) the server address in its edit box and press enter or the Go button, and the connection attempt will be launched.


Accepted Format

Standard FTP URL format is recognized:

ftp://[user ID:password@]<host name>[:port]/[path name/]

The leading "ftp://" can be omitted.

The port number will be defaulted to 21. If the server uses a different port, you can simply enter a colon followed by the port number at the end of the server address. For example, you enter to instruct TurboFTP to connect to port 21 of server

Like the Quick Connect dialog, the Address Bar accepts a complete URL that includes remote directory path after the server address. For example, the following URL

also works and TurboFTP will automatically attempt to enter remote directory /pub/upload/ after logon.

History List

The Address Bar maintains a history list of previous visited sites. You can easily connect to any of these sites again by pressing the down-arrow button on the right and select the one you want in the drop-down list.

Advanced Settings

If you need to specify advanced settings before connecting to an FTP server, then you probably need to use Quick Connect or even to create a persistent server profile in the FTP Site Address Book.
