FileZilla is a fast and reliable FTP client, including secure options SFTP and TLS.

Internally, it supports connection throttling, keepalive, timeout detection, IPv6, SOCKS 4/5 and HTTP 1.1 proxy etc.

Alternatively, Filezilla Portable is pre-configured as portable and automatically adjusts paths, as well as X-Filezilla.

Cross-platform with clients available for Mac and Linux. For Windows XP, an older and unsupported version is available.

Best FTP client I've used:

* You can backup your settings (a few kilobytes) or the whole program with the portable version.
* Very compatible with a very wide variety of FTP, FTPs, and SFTP servers I've used both Windows and Linux. Very reliable - never crashes.
* Close the program and re-launch when you get home and it will remember what was in your queue.
* Bandwidth throttling to prevent saturating your upload/download.

Only FlashFXP provides something extra (FTP Search capability) but isn't free OR portable.

What the.. is the Edit file function gone?

Ennovy 2007-09-09 09:59

2Spongebob: Read this
Unfortunately not all features currently implemented in the old 2.x versions could make it into 3.0.0. However most of them will be implemented in a future version. In addition, FileZilla 2 and 3 can coexist on the same system in case you depend on a feature currently in 2.x

linuxamp 2007-09-09 20:59

V3 still does not support public/private key SFTP without Pageant. Wonder if they'll ever support it.

Commander 2007-09-23 13:01

Version 3 is not completely ready for prime time, since it does not yet support command line functions.

I'll stay with version 2 until command line is supported.

tomasSC 2007-10-22 03:58

10MB ?!?!
this used to be a portable & LIGHTWEIGHT app

Commander 2007-11-09 06:34

Version 3 still does NOT support command line functions. Version 2 seems like a much better program for now. Sometimes "progress" goes in the wrong direction.

Commander 2007-11-29 06:46

As best I can tell, this still does not support the command line functions available in 2.x.

Strange to release a new version that lacks major features of the previous version.

I'll stick with version 2.x until command line functions are added to version 3.x.

Jesse 2008-01-11 05:53

I thought the final version would finally add command line support (which version 2 already had and was dropped in version 3), but no luck.

I agree with the comments above that this new version is not as useful as version 2.

Why would they go backwards and elminate functions from new versions?

Paciuli 2008-01-11 12:11

Version 3 has been rewritten from scratch, so no wonder some old features may be lacking. Still, i relly miss some of them too, so i'm keeping both versions but still use 2.x all the time

Mehrez 2008-03-08 12:34

I have tested several clients. This is my first choice. Thanks.

Klaus 2008-03-12 02:29

Brilliant software. Fast, reliable and PORTABLE. Love it.

Kermode 2008-03-25 09:26

If you feel its lacking functions, perhaps you should go bitch on the page of the people who actually program it.

Beware! FileZilla does not encrypt your saved passwords in the Site Manager or any where else! It is saved in plain text!

semiRocket 2009-04-24 05:51

I can confirm that, passwords are saved in addition to other settings in %AppData%\FileZilla\sitemanager.xml
Great thing if you forget your password ;-)

avoidz 2009-11-23 13:26

I had no trouble with version 2, but since version 3 I can never stop FileZilla from disconnecting from the server - any help? Cheers!

Magibon 2011-02-25 00:27

thank you, everything works as advertised :)
this works better than payware i have used in the past!?!


mrsimpleton 2012-01-19 06:10

Am I missing something? How is this a portable app??


Erkhyan 2012-01-19 07:13

It can be run from a USB drive connected to any computer and leaves no trace on said computer. How is this NOT a portable app?


domestique 2013-10-04 01:23

Have used FileZilla for some time quite unaware it's been storing my passwords in plain text.

A quick search on the FileZilla forum reveals the developer is blatantly unconcerned citing the option to 'Not save passwords' as adequate.

I find this basic lack of security quite shocking and think a note should be added to the description above so people are aware of this 'feature'.

As for me, I've used FileZilla for the last time >.


anon32028 2014-03-29 01:26

The description lists this as stealth, but on initial run, it writes stuff the the registry. Thus saying it is stealth is a lie.


Checker 2014-03-29 10:29

@ anon32028:
1. Did you follow the instructions at "How to extract" ?
2. Did you read: ?


cyrgh30 2014-06-02 08:48

Filezilla no longer supports XP, unfortunately!


JohnTHaller 2014-06-02 16:32

cyrgh30: FileZilla still works under Windows XP. The publisher has just removed Windows XP from the list of supported operating systems now that Windows XP has been retired.


Midas 2014-06-02 21:23

I for one thank you for that info, JohnTHaller. :)


linuxx 2014-08-04 18:17

Doesn't work here. I'm sticking with 3.8.0.


JohnTHaller 2014-08-04 21:27

linuxx: drops Windows XP support. If you're on XP, this and future versions won't work. The last version that supports XP is linked in the main text.


vmars316 2015-02-02 13:51

Does FileZilla have a batch component ?
I would like to also use it to keep my stealth Cliplog/CipFind files inSync onto my website . So any of my computers can get up to date info .?


webfork 2015-02-06 01:29

vmars: When I looked into this a few months ago, there weren't any.  You'll want to look into WinSCP or other command-line tools.


CornHolio the Gringo 2015-03-04 21:40

Always use the version from, Its the version that works best.



JohnyZlo 2015-06-03 21:13

FileZilla is now also available as 64bit Windows program. Users of 32bit FileZilla on 64bit Windows will get automatically migrated using the auto-updater


DarkShadow 2016-05-27 15:20

giulia 2017-05-26 17:08

smaragdus 2017-05-27 06:44

See this forum comment-
"How to extract:" instructions should be redacted accordingly.


smaragdus 2017-06-03 03:56
