Tips to Access FTP/SSH on Different Ports using Eclipse RSE

FTP and SSH servers can use different port other than the default and most of these servers are configured using default ports, but often times FTP/SSH servers may be on different port, so how do you configure Eclipse RSE to access these servers? That’s what this little article is about.

  1. Make sure you know the FTP/Port port first, create an account on the server
  2. Start up Eclipse with RSE
  3. Go to Window -> Open Perspective -> Remote System Explorer to bring up Remote Systems Panel
  4. Expand SSH/FTP node(s) if you created them already, otherwise, please refer to XXXXXX to create an FTP or SSH connection, your Remote Systems panel will look like this:
  5. For FTP right click Files node under your FTP root node and choose properties from context menu, for SSH you can click on Sftp Files, Ssh Shells or Ssh Terminals node. You will now be presented the following dialog:
  6. Select Subsystem node on the left panel of the properties dialog, note the port field on the right side of the dialog, change the value to whatever port you have in hand (see above image for details)
  7. Click OK to accept the changes you just made, and right click FTP/SSH node and choose connect, now you should be able to connect to your FTP/SSH server

Hope you enjoy it

    • Check your version of RSE. I had a similar problem and found my version of RSE was not recent!

  3. Same here with the first comment, custom port is ignored. To solve it install the latest milestone 3.1 http://download.eclipse.org/dsdp/tm/updates/3.1milestones/

    Uninstall the 3.0 and then add the link to the software updates. Finally install and will work like a charm.
