~/.lftp.rc parameters detailed
########## SETTINGS
# On startup, lftp executes ~/.lftprc and ~/.lftp/rc. You can place aliases and 'set' commands
# there. Some people prefer to see full protocol debug, use 'debug' to turn the debug on.
# Certain commands and settings take a time interval parameter. It has the format Nx[Nx...], where N is time amount
# (floating point) and x is time unit: d - days, h - hours, m - minutes, s - seconds. Default unit is second. E.g.
# 5h30m or 5.5h. Also the interval can be 'infinity', 'inf', 'never', 'forever' - it means infinite interval. E.g.
# 'sleep forever' or 'set dns:cache-expire never'.
# The name of a variable can be abbreviated unless it becomes ambiguous. The prefix before ':' can be omitted too.
# You can set one variable several times for different closures, and thus you can get a particular settings for
# particular state. The closure is to be specified after variable name separated with slash '/'.
# The closure for 'dns:', 'net:', 'ftp:', 'http:', 'hftp:' domain variables is currently just the host name as you
# specify it in the 'open' command (with some exceptions where closure is meaningless, e.g. dns:cache-size). For
# some 'cmd:' domain variables the closure is current URL without path. For other variables it is not currently
# used. See examples in the sample lftp.conf.
# Boolean settings can be one of (true, on, yes, 1, +) for a True value or one of (false, off, no, 0, -) for a False
# value.
# There is also a system-wide startup file in /etc/lftp.conf. It can be in different directory, see FILES section.
# lftp has the following settable variables (you can also use 'set -a' to see all variables and their values):
# save plain text passwords in ~/.lftp/bookmarks on 'bookmark add' command. Off by default.
set bmk:save-passwords no
# The commands in string are executed before lftp exits.
set cmd:at-exit "bye"
# enables csh-like history expansion.
set cmd:csh-history no
#The value is used when 'open' is used with just host name without protocol. Default is 'ftp'.
set cmd:default-protocol ftp
# if true, exit when an unconditional (without || and && at begin) command fails.
set cmd:fail-exit no
# time of command execution, which is considered as 'long' and a beep is done before next prompt. 0 means off.
set cmd:long-running 1
# default ls argument
set cmd:ls-default "ls -lh"
# when false, lftp refuses to go to background when exiting. To force it, use 'exit bg'.
set cmd:move-background yes
# The prompt. lftp recognizes the following backslash-escaped special characters that are decoded as follows:
# \@
# insert @ if current user is not default
# \a
# an ASCII bell character (07)
# \e
# an ASCII escape character (033)
# \h
# the hostname you are connected to
# \n
# newline
# \s
# the name of the client (lftp)
# \S
# current slot name
# \u
# the username of the user you are logged in as
# \U
# the URL of the remote site (e.g., ftp://g437.ub.gu.se/home/james/src/lftp)
# \v
# the version of lftp (e.g., 2.0.3)
# \w
# the current working directory at the remote site
# \W
# the base name of the current working directory at the remote site
# \nnn
# the character corresponding to the octal number nnn
# \\
# a backslash
# \?
# skips next character if previous substitution was empty.
# \[
# begin a sequence of non-printing characters, which could be used to embed a terminal control sequence into the
# prompt
# \]
# end a sequence of non-printing characters

# address instead of the one returned by PASV command, port number would not be changed. Default is true.
set ftp:fix-pasv-address yes
# if true, lftp will try to set up source ftp server in passive mode first, otherwise destination one. If first

set ftp:ignore-pasv-address yes
# if set to false, empty lists from LIST command will be treated as incorrect, and another method (NLST) will be used.
set ftp:list-empty-ok yes
# sets options which are always appended to LIST command. It can be useful to set this to '-a' if server does not
# show dot (hidden) files by default. Default is empty.

# complete" message before flushing data transfer. In such cases NOOP commands can prevent connection timeout.
set ftp:nop-interval 60
# sets passive ftp mode. This can be useful if you are behind a firewall or a dumb masquerading router. In passive

# When set to ''open'', lftp first sends proxy user and proxy password and then ''OPEN ftp.example.org'' followed
# by ''USER user''. The site password is then sent as usual.
# When set to ''user'' (default), lftp first sends proxy user and proxy password and then

# (fill with zeros) the file if REST followed by STOR is used.

# other ssl settings are only available if lftp was compiled with an ssl/tls library.
set ftp:ssl-allow yes
# if true, lftp loads ssl:key-file for protected data connection too. When false, it does not, and the server can
# match data and control connections by session ID. Default is true.
# if true, refuse to send password in clear when server does not support SSL. Default is false.
set ftp:ssl-force yes
# if true, request ssl connection for data transfers. This is cpu-intensive but provides privacy. Default is false.
set ftp:ssl-protect-data yes
# if true, request ssl connection for data transfer between two ftp servers in FXP mode. CPSV or SSCN command will
# be used in that case. If ssl connection fails for some reason, lftp would try unprotected FXP transfer unless
# ftp:ssl-force is set for any of the two servers. Default is false.
set ftp:ssl-protect-fxp yes
# if true, request ssl connection for file list transfers. Default is true.
set ftp:ssl-protect-list yes
# if true, lftp would issue CCC command after logon, thus disable ssl protection layer on control connection.
set ftp:ssl-use-ccc no
# interval between STAT commands. Default is 1 second.
set ftp:stat-interval 1
# if true, lftp will send one command at a time and wait for response. This might be useful if you are using a
# buggy ftp server or router. When it is off, lftp sends a pack of commands and waits for responses - it speeds up
# operation when round trip time is significant. Unfortunately it does not work with all ftp servers and some
# routers have troubles with it, so it is on by default.
set ftp:sync-mode yes
# Assume this timezone for time in listings returned by LIST command. This setting can be GMT offset
# [+|-]HH[:MM[:SS]] or any valid TZ value (e.g. Europe/Moscow or MSK-3MSD,M3.5.0,M10.5.0/3). The default is GMT. Set

# if true, lftp sends STAT command in FXP mode transfer to know how much data has been transferred. See also
# ftp:stat-interval. Default is true.
set ftp:use-stat yes
# when true, lftp uses STAT instead of LIST command. By default '.' is used as STAT argument. Using STAT, lftp

# ftp:list-options to specify them (e.g. -la).
set ftp:use-stat-for-list yes
# when true (default), lftp uses TELNET IAC command and follows TELNET protocol as specified in RFC959. When

# default.
set ftp:verify-address yes
# verify that data connection has port 20 (ftp-data) on its remote end. This can possibly prevent data connection

set ftp:web-mode no
# specifies initial PROT setting for FTPS connections. Should be one of: C, S, E, P, or empty. Default is empty

# hftp:proxy (URL)
# if set to off, lftp will send password as part of URL to the proxy. This may be required for some proxies (e.g.
# M-soft). Default is on, and lftp will send password as part of Authorization header.
# set hftp:use-authorization (boolean)

# set http:put-method (PUT or POST)
