FileZilla Pro Command Line performs operations on files and directories. The path of files or directories is required for some of these operations. Paths can be either local or remote.
Local Path Syntax
The local path parameter refers to the path of the file or directory on the local system. The syntax for
local path accepts valid Unix or Windows paths, including UNC paths.
The path can be relative to the current local directory, or it can be an absolute path.
Remote Path Syntax
The remote path parameter refers to the path of a file or directory on the remote system. The syntax
is Unix by default. The remote path type can be configured in the Site Manager.
The following examples illustrate how local and remote paths are used:
local path documents/letter.pdf is a relative path to the file
letter.pdf under the
documents directory, which is under the current directory. The remote
path /Backup/letter.pdf is an absolute path of the file
letter.pdf under directory
Backup, which is under the root directory. It is an absolute path, as it starts with the root (/) directory:
put documents/letter.pdf /Backup/letter.pdf
In the next example, the local path is absolute, and the remote path is relative:
put C:\\Documents\\Letter.docx Archive/Letter.docx
Note that the backslash character (\) needs to be escaped with another backslash character (\\). See
On Windows, UNC paths are also accepted. The local path below is
put \\\\documentserver\\share\\Budget.xlsx /Project/Budget.xlsx
