       FileZilla - FTP client


       filezilla [-l <logontype>] <FTP URL>
       filezilla -h|-s|-v
       filezilla -c <site>


       FileZilla  is  a powerful client for plain FTP, FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS)
       and the SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).


       -c <site>, --site <site>
              Connect to the given site from the Site Manager.  Site has to be
              given  as  complete  path, with a slash as separation character.
              Any slash or backslash that is part  of  a  segment  has  to  be
              escaped  with  a  backslash.  Path has to be prefixed with 0 for
              user defined entries or 1 for default entries. Site path may not
              contain double quotation marks.

              Example:  filezilla  -c  0/foo/bar/sl\/ash  connects to the user
              site sl/ash in the site directory foo/bar

              May not be used together with -s nor with URL parameter.

       -h, --help
              Displays a help dialog listing these commandline options.

       -l <logontype>, --logontype <logontype>
              Set a special logontype, can only be used in combination with  a
              FTP URL as argument.

              Logontype  has  to  be  either  ask  or interactive. If -l isn't
              given, the normal logontype is used.

       -s, --sitemanager
              Start with Site Manager opened. May not be used together with -c
              nor with URL parameter.

       -v, --version
              Display version number of FileZilla.


       The  FZ_DATADIR  environment  variable  can  be  used  to  specify  the
       directory containing FileZilla's data files.
