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.
Standard FTP URL format is recognized:
ftp://[user ID:password@]<host name>[:port]/[path
The leading "ftp://" can be
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
ftp.myftpserver.com:2121 to instruct TurboFTP to connect to port 21
of server ftp.myftpserver.com.
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.
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.
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.
