Setting up FTP connection in Total Commander


Before connecting, check FTP security settings - the IP address from which the connection will be made must be added to the allowed ones, or access restrictions must be disabled.
  1. From the main menu select "Network → Connect to FTP server…" or press combination Ctrl+F:
  2. Click "Add to…":
  3. Fill in the fields on the tab "General":
    • "Connection name" — specify an arbitrary connection name. For example, the name of the site, FTP user or hosting account.
    • "Server [:Port]" - specify host from FTP connection data... Since the connection is on a standard port 21, it can be omitted.
    • "SSL/TLS" - check the box to use encryption. In case of connection problems, uncheck the box to use a regular connection without encryption.
    • "Account" — specify the login from FTP connection data.
    • "Password" — specify FTP user password.
    • "Passive exchange mode (like a web browser)" - be sure to check the box.
  4. In the tab "Extended" against "File name encoding" choose "UTF-8" and press "OK":
  5. Select the created connection in the list on the left and click "Connect":
  6. Turnon binary data transfer mode.
