Managing Your Quickconnect in Filezilla

So, I had some ftp connections in my quickconnect which I wanted to remove as in Filezilla there’s NO easy way to remove those from the UI itself. One has to access the recentservers.xml¬†file and remove the section related to those ftp connections from there.

Unfortunately most of the sites show the location of the xml file in newer operating systems.

Here’s where I found it on Windows XP, since most of the companies are still using Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\FileZilla

Remove the section pertaining to connection you want to remove, i.e.

<Server>
    <Host>unwanted server connection</Host>
    <Port>21</Port>
    <Protocol>0</Protocol>
    <Type>0</Type>
    <User>John</User>
    <Pass>mypassword</Pass>
    <Logontype>1</Logontype>
    <TimezoneOffset>0</TimezoneOffset>
    <PasvMode>MODE_DEFAULT</PasvMode>
    <MaximumMultipleConnections>0</MaximumMultipleConnections>
    <EncodingType>Auto</EncodingType>
    <BypassProxy>0</BypassProxy>
</Server>

This should do it!

Let me know if there’s any issue with that
