How to Modify New Connection Behavior

By default, FileZilla/FileZilla Pro asks you what to do when you create a new remote server connection if it already has an active connection. You can modify this behavior, though.
The options are:

  • Always ask what to do (default)
  • Open a new tab for the new connection and don’t terminate the previous connection
  • Terminate the existing connection and create the new connection

To modify FileZilla Pro’s behavior when you open a new connection:

  1. In the main menu, click on Edit > Settings….
  2. Select Interface from the menu on the left.
  3. Select an option from the When starting a new connection while already connected drop down list.
  4. Click on OK.
