When I try to send a console command like wget or unzip when using an FTP connection, the server says, for example:

500 'WGET http://www.cyberduck.com': command not understood.

This was a problem with 3.3 and continues to be a problem in 3.4.

However, the console commands work when I connect using SFTP.

The SITE command is only a very limited extension point in the FTP protocol. We don't have full access to the system as when logged in using SSH. Sorry, I can't fix this.

By the way, over SSH connections you can unzip files using File → Unarchive. Again this only works for SSH for the same reason.
