Introduction

Feb 05, 2021 Using Filezilla SFTP to Securely Transfer Files FileZilla is a free and open source Secure File Transfer (SFTP) program for Linux, MacOS and Windows. It allows you to securely upload and download files between the Pressable servers and your computer.

If you have a Windows server and FileZilla Server as your FTP server (the default for our Managed Windows servers), you can easily add additional FTP users as needed. Each user will be ‘jailed’ into their shared folder. Open FileZilla Server Interface (start menu or desktop icon), then click ‘OK’ on the ‘Connect to Server’ dialog.’. SFTP Servers (SSH File Transfer Protocol, not to be confused with Simple File Transfer Protocol) use a protocol that allows for the transfer of files over a secure SSH connection. Unlike FTP, which does not encrypt data transfers, SFTP provides the capability to securely transfer data with greater reliability and increased performance. 1: For the first step our FTP program, Filezilla, must be downloaded from the following link:Download Filezilla. Make sure to download and install the windows client version. 2: To use Filezilla we will need our login information. Copy your information from the FTP login page to paste into Filezilla. Your ftp username, address, and then input.

FileZilla is a free, open source FTP client for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It supports both FTP and SFTP, and can be used with all (mt) Media Temple services. The first thing you need to do is download a copy of Filezilla at https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client. Please follow the installation steps to install the application on your computer.

Remember to replace example.com with your domain name.

FTP is not secure

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) uses clear text for all transmissions. Anyone is able to read the FTP usernames, passwords, commands and data by packet capture (sniffing) on the network. By default, RunCloud Firewall blocks FTP (port 21) at your server. You are recommended to use SFTP for file transfer instead.

Tip: You can use RunCloud File Manager in RunCloud panel for simple file management.

What is SFTP?

SSH or Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a secure file transfer protocol for file access, transfer, and management. It adapts the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol with encryption and secure authentication on both server and client.

SFTP provides two user-authentication options when connecting to your server: a)passwords or b)SSH2 key-based authentication. The SSH Keys is more secure than password.
