FileZilla client
Graphical FTP client

FileZilla is a FTP client with a nice graphical front-end. Features include:

  • Supports FTP, FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS) and SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
  • Supports resume and transfer of large files >4GB
  • Configurable Speed limits
  • Drag & drop support
  • Bookmarking
  • Filename filtering on filename (regex support), file size, and user/group permissions.
  • Directory comparison to quickly see differences between files on the local machine and the server
  • Synchronized directory browsing, such that if you have an identical directory structure on the local machine and the server, means that any directory navigation on one machine is duplicated on the other.
  • Remote file search
  • IPv6 support

There is a free software server as well that runs only on Windows. See our FTP category for a list of free software FTP servers that run on GNU/Linux.

Warning: the Windows installer bundles adware; use the ZIP download instead.
