FTP commands provide a useful way to manage your FTP site remotely. Some FTP servers support a rich set of FTP commands to manage the users, groups, quotas, and so on.

CrossFTP Pro offers powerful command line tool to easily manage your multiple FTP servers. To open the command line tool, choose View -> Command Line, and you will see the command line appearring below the FTP files panel. To submit a command to the FTP server, just enter your command, and press ENTER.

CrossFTP Pro also predefines a number of FTP commands for a number of famous FTP servers. To show the predefined command, choose a remote FTP site first, and display the command line's context menu by right click the mouse. The predefined command set in CrossFTP Pro contains glFTPd, glFTPd admin, RaidenFTPD, ioFTPD, Serv-U and DrFTPD. After the predefined command is displayed, the command's definition file will appear in the following position:
Mac/Linux/Unix: ~/.crossftp/ftpcmd.xml
Windows XP, 2000: C:\Documents and Settings\username\.crossftp\ftpcmd.xml, in which user name is your login name
Windows Vista: C:\Users\username\.crossftp\ftpcmd.xml, in which user name is your login name
You can also modify this configuration file to add your preferred command set.
Predefined commands

CrossFTP Pro also support to manage a number of FTP sites simultaneously. You should already know that CrossFTP is a multi-tabbed FTP client. If you have a list of similar FTP sites, and have already opened them in the CrossFTP's tabs, you can submit the FTP command to these sites simultaneously without reentering the command many times. To do this, just choose "Sumbit to All Tabs" in the popup menu, as shown in the picture, and then input the command and press ENTER. That's it, very easy, right?
