FileZilla Client is a cross-platform FTP, FTPS and SFTP client with many advanced features such as "in-place" editing of files. resumption of broken transfers, bookmarks, etc and an not so intuitive graphical interface. Can be used along with Cygwin and Teraterm for replacing Hummingbird Connectivity Suite
In FTP realm, functionally is generally equivalent to expensive enterprise products like Hummingbird FTP and WS_FTP Professional but it supports scp and sftp too.
Among interesting features:
What it does:
What it does not:
FileZilla installation procedure:
There are two ways to connect to remote site using FileZilla
You can make FileZilla more user friendly using several customarizations:
Under Double-Click Action:
Double-click action on files, select View/Edit from dropdown list.
Metapad -- very close to notepad in style but with far superior functionality.
Notepad++ -- lightweight and reasonably simple
NoteTab Light -- not so light ;-) and in some aspect definitely an overkill. Still might be useful for those who do a lot of HTML editing
There are three recommended solutions to the Unix file viewing problem in FileZilla:
1. Change to Wordpad as a default editor
2. Add metapad ( http://liquidninja.com/metapad/ ) as a component into FileZilla directory and set it as default editor (this is just one executable and it is much better then notepad). It also can be used as a very nice replacement for notepad. Key features (see Metapad - Wikipedia):
3. Install Notepad++ ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/notepad-plus/ ) in addition to FileZilla and make it default editor in FileZilla setup. This is a nice free programmers/administrators editor that has independent value and improves the quality of environment. Features: (see Notepad++ - Wikipedia)
Some of its features include: ]
This process only applies if you use Filezilla for FTP to sites outside the University. Access to University sites should work normally without the need to reconfigure Filezilla.
- In Filezilla, go to the Edit menu and choose Settings.
- In the Filezilla Options dialogue box, find the Connection section of the 'tree' display at the left-hand side of the box. If there is a ' + ' (plus sign) box next to the word 'Connection', click it to expand the menu and show the settings you need.
- Under Connection, click FTP proxy settings and change these settings:
- Select the 'USER [email protected]' option button (the sixth one in the list)
- In the 'Proxy host' box, type ftpproxy.ex.ac.uk
- In the 'Port' box, type 8021
- Leave the 'User' and 'Pass' boxes blank.
- Under Connection, click Firewall settings and tick the 'Passive mode' box.
- Under Connection, click Proxy settings and tick the 'direct connection (no proxy)' box.
- Click OK to save your changes and close the dialogue box.
In addition to the Firewall support, FileZilla also supports SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 based proxy servers. Setting up the proxy server is very similar to the firewall settings.
