The FileZilla client does not support any kind of automation.

Though you can use WinSCP to easily script your FileZilla sites.

Filezilla Website Online Zetten

Use the Import Sites command to import your FileZilla site to WinSCP.

Once the site is imported, use the Generate Session URL/Code command to generate a script or a .NET assembly code (C#, VB.NET or PowerShell) for the site.

Alternatively, you can directly refer to the FileZilla site from the WinSCP script, if you want to maintain a possibility to manage the site settings from FileZilla.

Use the -filezilla switch of the open command:
