    Click on the Properties button in the Quick Connect dialog
  2. In the Login group, select LastPass in the the Provider selection box
  3. To use an existing LastPass item, click on the ... button.

How does SmartFTP find the LastPass site

Given a favorite, SmartFTP searches the LastPass password vault for a matching site. It uses several strategies:

Strategy: Item id

If a LastPass item id is specified in the favorite properties, then it will be used to locate the LastPass site entry. 

Strategy: Url

It uses the Url and Username property in the LastPass site entry to identify a corresponding site. The Url property must be set according to Url mapping.

Strategy: Favorite Id

It looks for a text form field in a LastPass site with the name SmartSoft.SmartFTP.FavoriteItem.Id and the favorite id (e.g. {D9F65CFA-D79D-4410-95D1-F7A395707330}) as the value.
