New Site Wizard - step 3

In step 3, you enter the connection type, the proxy configuration and the transfer mode.

The available connection types are FTP and SFTP. If you choose SFTP, you can use the Advanced button to select the Authentication method.

Check the Use global proxy configuration checkbox to accept the default proxy settings, or uncheck the box and click on the Proxy settings button to customize the proxy settings.

Checking the Use Passive Mode checkbox activates the passive transfer mode.

In most cases, it is a good idea to connect using passive transfer mode. However, it is absolutely essential if your network is protected by a router with a firewall or if you use a proxy server.

Check the Need more settings box if you want the Wizard to proceed to the next step.
