Any slash or backslash that is part of a segment has to be escaped with a backslash. Path has to be prefixed with 0 for user defined entries or 1 for default entries. Site path may not contain double quotation marks.

Example: filezilla -c 0/foo/bar/sl\/ash connects to the user site sl/ash in the site directory foo/bar

May not be used together with -s nor with URL parameter.

-a <path>, --local <path>

Sets the local site to the given path.

Example: filezilla -a "/foo bar/"

-h, --help
Displays a help dialog listing these commandline options.
-l <logontype>, --logontype <logontype>

Logontype has to be either ask or interactive. If -l isn't given, the normal logontype is used.
