Robo-FTP does not appear to work reliably when connecting to the FileZilla FTP Server (Robo-FTP 3.5.x and earlier)

There are known issues with Robo-FTP in "standard FTP mode" when the FileZilla FTP Server is used. The solution is to use "alternate FTP mode" (or AltFTP) when using Robo-FTP to log onto the FileZilla server. Alternate FTP mode can be selected when managing the site or by adding the /servertype=altftp option to the FTPLOGON command.

This option was removed (and should not be needed) in Robo-FTP version 3.6.x and later.
