opening remote files - ftp sites

Postby broozer » Thu May 03, 2012 3:38 pm

When opening a remote file on an ftp server, you see a dropdown box, but I cannot find a way to save ftp sites (or am I mistaken ?).

There is File -> Save As Remote. Is that what you're looking for?

No, I was wondering whether I could save several ftp location with login credentials, in order not to enter them every time I want to open/save a remote file. Clear now ?

Ah, I see. Unfortunately no, it doesn't save that information. I didn't want to get into saving passwords on the file system and have people yell at me for not encrypting the passwords sufficiently. :D I'd be happy to save the FTP hosts and associated user id's if you opened a Feature Request to remind me. If you really, really wanted passwords saved, I could make it an opt-in option and warn that saving passwords always implies some level of security risk, like Eclipse does.
