Introduction[edit]

The "FileZilla" project actually encompasses two different pieces of software:

FileZilla Client is a program for transferring files from (and to) so-called FTP servers.

If you encounter an Internet link which starts with ftp:// instead of http://, the file will be fetched from an FTP server. In contrast to usual web browsers, FileZilla doesn't only offer you the possibility to download files, it also offers you to upload, rename and manage files and whole directory trees as well. Please read on here

FileZilla Server is an FTP server, i.e. a program allowing file upload/download.

Using FileZilla Server you can quickly set up a server for internal file exchange as well as for providing files over the internet. Please read on here

FileZilla Client[edit]

For the beginner[edit]

If you don't know what to do with the installer you probably just downloaded, you can read the installation guide.

Afterwards or if you already installed FileZilla Client, read Using FileZilla Client to get a little introduction on how to transfer files and how to configure FileZilla Client.

For the advanced[edit]

Troubleshooting[edit]

If you encounter problems using FileZilla Client, don't despair. Here are some helpful resources for resolving them:

  • For general questions like "Where does FileZilla store all its sites and settings?", please have a look at the FAQ.
  • For instructions on how to set up routers and firewalls, have a look at the network configuration guide.

If you then still don't know how to resolve your issue, you may want to either ask in the Forum or in FileZilla's IRC channel on freenode.net. If you think that you found a bug, the bug tracker is the right place to go.

Troubleshooting[edit]

There's of course not only help for FileZilla Client, but also for the server:

  • For general questions like "How can I enable anonymous logins?", please have a look at the FAQ.
  • For instructions on how to set up routers and firewalls, also have a look at the network configuration guide.
