"Easy to use and reliable"

What do you like best?

Easy layout with the proper windows being displayed. Easy to upload and download files.

There are constant updates for security and performance. It auto-checks for updates when you open it and the updates are extremely quick to download and install.

If this had a cost, I'm pretty sure I pay to use it. That's how much I like it.

What do you dislike?

Although the connect and disconnect icons at the to are easy to understand, the others aren't.

Once uploaded I don't believe you can unzip through FileZilla. If you can remote unzip, I haven't figured it out yet!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Free would be the most important- so why not try it out! FileZilla is easy to use Just move files from window to window to upload or download them. It's been around for as long as I can remember.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use FTP all the time when building websites for clients as well as diagnosing hacked and broken websites. We can easily download or change the folder name if we feel the need to.

"Excelente cliente FTP"

What do you like best?

Es gratuito de código abierto y licencia pública GNU.

Está disponible para gran cantidad de idiomas y distintos sistemas operativos.

Fácil de instalar y de configurar, por lo que rápidamente podremos empezar a compartir archivos.

Me resultó muy sencillo empezar a utilizarlo, ya que tiene un interfaz muy parecida a la del Explorador de Windows, y nos muestra las carpetas de nuestro pc y las remotas, con lo que podemos enviar o recibir archivos simplemente arrastrandolos a la carpeta correspondiente.

También posee un administrador de servidores FTP con el que podemos guardar las direcciones que utilicemos con mayor frecuencia y así no tener que poner todos los datos cada vez que lo vamos a utilizar.

Soporta conexiones a través Proxy y Firewall por lo que no hay problemas para utilizarlo con el antivirus o los cortafuegos que tengamos activados en nuestra red.

Permite continuar descargas interrumpidas, si el servidor lo soporta y podemos poner los archivos que necesitamos subir o descargar en cola.

Soporta conexiones SSL y SFTP.

También se puede configurar la velocidad de transferencia de archivos.

What do you dislike?

Hasta el momento no tengo nada negativo que exponer y más cuando es una aplicación gratuita, muy completa, estable y sencilla de utilizar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sería bueno tener un foro en español donde existiera la posibilidad de poder compartir la experiencia en la utilización del programa con el fin de poder mejorarlo y así beneficiar a toda la comunidad de usuarios.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Me resulta muy útil cuando tengo que actualizar la web o realizar labores de mantenimiento en wordpress.

También es muy útil para subir o descargar archivos desde el servidor interno de la empresa.

"Upload files to FTP easily"

What do you like best?

Filezilla is a FTP Client which is free and easy to use. You can connect easily to your server entering your credentials.One of the features I like the most is the drag and drop option , you can upload every file in only one step. As the most used FTP Client , hosting companies offer you a configuration file when you buy a hosting service so you do not have to enter the credentials

What do you dislike?

The security in this app is not good enough. They save the password in plain text causing vulnerabilities in your system. I do not like the interface , I think it looks like an old program

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you manage websites and you need Ftp Access this is your software. It is a free and easy to use app and in my opinion the best in the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software helps me to connect to web provider to manage my ftp server.

"Filezilla"

What do you like best?

Filezilla es un programa gratuito disponible desde la página oficial para su descarga y posterior instalación en cualquier pc pues es compatible con la amplia mayoría de sistemas operativos disponibles en el mercado a día de hoy.

Con este software podrás conectar con un ordenador servidor para añadir o descargar archivos de forma segura.

Su interfaz es intuitiva y sencilla.

What do you dislike?

Todo me gusta de filezilla, nunca una conexión FTP fue tan fácil de usar. Así que no puedo añadir nada malo en este apartado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Muy recomendable para transferencias FTP entre cliente y servidor totalmente gratis y muy fácil de manejar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Filezilla se utiliza para conectar con el servidor web donde alojamos la página para editarla y publicar online noticias, actualizaciones y otros menesteres. Gracias a que es gratuito no nos revierte de forma negativa en los presupuestos de la corporación. Estamos encantados con este software.

"Application to transfer files via FTP easy to use"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to connect and interact with the structures of file systems.

The graphical interface simplifies the location and visualization of the necessary files.

The transfer of files is fast and if there is a problem with any file, the system notifies you which files could not be copied.

You can connect several remote computers simultaneously and visualize their equipment during the same session.

The files can be passed from one folder to another just by dragging the indicated file to the folder they want to be the new destination.

You can download the files if you wish to have a backup on your local computer, and that you can easily recover at any time.

What do you dislike?

I would like that the files could be edited directly from the application, without needing to open them in another application. Since sometimes we do not want to store those files on our local computer, we just want to modify them on our remote computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for an application to help you and simplify the task of managing, editing, creating or deleting files on servers or remote computers is one of the best options that can be found, since its interface is very intuitive and does not require advanced computer skills. to be able to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease of connectivity to users of any level, no advanced configuration required or write commands in the console to perform tasks

"Smooth transfers to and from our web host"

What do you like best?

FileZilla is very intuitive and easy to use once you set up your connections. You can just click on a site bookmark and connect to your web host in a specific folder right away. We can either select the file in FileZilla's file browser to upload or drag and drop files from our computer's file browser. Very fast and reliable.

What do you dislike?

It may be tricky for some people to get their connections set up. Knowing where to enter FTP info could be more clear for people that aren't familiar with FTP clients. There are times when the web address doesn't work for no apparent reason and we'll have to resort to using an IP address.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend talking with your web host to get all the required FTP connection details before trying to connect with FileZilla. It might save you some time and headaches, because I've tried connected before with the FTP info shown in my hosting account, but it just didn't work. My web hosting's support team was able to send me the correct info.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

File transfers are made easy with FileZilla. We don't have to log into our web hosting account to transfer files. We can quickly update web images and other website content by just connecting via FileZilla and uploading through there.

"FileZilla es un gran programa para transferir archivos"

What do you like best?

Filezilla es una herramienta fácil de usar para agregar archivos a cualquier servidor al que tenga acceso. Ha sido muy útil al subir cientos de fotos. También lo usamos cuando los clientes tienen varios archivos que deben cargarse en su sitio para migrar el sitio o simplemente realizar actualizaciones masivas.

What do you dislike?

Algunas veces me desconecto de los servidores y los archivos no se procesan. Este problema no es necesariamente un problema de Filezilla; es muy posible que la desconexión sea el resultado de mi red.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo usar este producto porque es fácil de usar, tiene una interfaz intuitiva y simple, también permite transferir archivos grandes entre máquinas de la misma red, ideal cuando se trabaja con servidores.

También desde la interfaz se permite la copia de un archivo simplemente arrastrando al sitio de destino, ya sea la computadora local o la computadora de destino.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Forma rápida de transferir archivos masivos. Puedo configurarlo y olvidarlo. Es genial tener una herramienta para transferir archivos a servidores rápidamente. Puedo iniciar la transferencia y dejar que lo haga. Si algo no se transfiere, Filezila me da una lista y solo los vuelvo a intentar.

"Transferencia FTP"

What do you like best?

Puedes conectarte a tus servidores a través del puerto que se desea simplemente con la dirección IP, el nombre de usuario, contraseña y puerto, es muy bueno y eficaz, además, puedes crear varias cuentas de usuario para acceder directamente al servidor simplemente dando un click.

What do you dislike?

A veces no accede al servidor y da fallos, además la aplicación es bastante molesto cuando la actualizan ya que es actualizada continuamente y cada vez que abres la aplicación muestra un menú bastante molesto.

No se pueden automatizar procesos y la mayoría de servidores ftp disponen de muy poca capacidad para encriptar archivos de origen a destino.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo descargarlo y probarlo ya que es gratuito, si no conoces muy bien como utilizar la aplicación, deberías de ver tutoriales o guías para como iniciar en el mundo de transferencias de archivos a través de FTP.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gracias a Filezilla puedo realizar transferencias masivas de archivos a mis servidores, es muy rápido y directo, además, me ha permitido reanudar descargas previas de archivos, si envías por el puerto 22 te aseguras de que la conexión es segura.

"FileZilla, el cliente lider FTP de código abierto"

What do you like best?

FileZilla es un cliente FTP que permite usar dicho protocolo para la administración de sitios web. Es muy fácil de configurar e instalar. Tan solo debes obtener los datos del servidor al que te quieras conectar, añadirlo a FileZilla y listo, podrás acceder al sitio que estés gestionando de una manera sencilla y rápida. Soporta el protocolo FTPS, el cual es una mejora del protocolo FTP que permite conectarse de manera segura sobre TLS. Te permite arrastrar cualquier archivo que tengas almacenado en tu equipo local al servidor de destino, editar los archivos del servidor sin tener que preocuparte de volver a subir las modificaciones.

What do you dislike?

Me gusta todo de FIleZilla excepto la interfaz, pues es muy simple y la manera en que gestiona el ancho de banda por defecto. Si no lo configuras y tienes una conexión lenta, es posible que al final acabes sin conexión, puesto que por defecto FIleZilla usa todo el ancho de banda disponible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

FileZilla es el cliente FTP líder del mercado, y lo mejor de todo es que es totalmente gratuito y de código abierto. Para cualquier proyecto que montes, ya sea amateur o profesional, es prácticamente indispensable usar este software, pues tienes todo el soporte de sus creadores. En definitiva, puedes usar otros clientes, pero este sin duda es el mejor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FileZilla es genial para gestionar nuestro sitio web, el cual corre bajo un servidor Linux. La conexión la realizamos con FTP sobre TLS, el cual implica una conexión rápida y segura en nuestros servidores.

"FTP para todos"

What do you like best?

En mi opinión la mejor solución para Servidor o cliente FTP actualmente, es muy sencillo de aprender a usar y de configurar. Solo necesitas descargarlo de forma gratuita de la página oficial. Hacer la instalación por pasos que es muy sencilla, y una vez instalado y compruebe automáticamente que no hay actualizaciones solo debes añadir un nuevo sitio donde tienes que configurar la dirección IP o nombre y los datos de acceso al mismo. También permite conexiones por FTP seguro (FTPS, ya que no admite SFTP). Por lo demás una vez has conectado al sitio correspondiente (Puedes configurar varios), solo tienes que utilizar el explorador que lleva en la parte inferior para moverte en local (Izquierda) y el sitio remoto (Derecha) y arrastrar archivos o carpetas para moverlos de una ubicación a otra.

What do you dislike?

la interfaz se puede mejorar mucho, es un poco simple y esta muy recarga la parte de los menús, por lo demás es una herramienta muy versátil y potente.

Recommendations to others considering the product

herramienta potente para gestionar las conexiones FTP, se pueden hacer varias conexiones simultaneas y mover archivos es tan sencillo como arrastrarlos de un lugar a otro. Sin duda recomendado a cualquiera que este buscando una aplicación para gestionar conexiones a carpetas FTP

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

es el medio utilizado para subir y bajar archivos desde las carpetas FTP compartidas por los departamentos de la organización. También los utilizan los diseñadores y programadores web para realizar cambios en las webs de la empresa.

"One of My First FTP clients"

What do you like best?

Filezilla is simple and straight forward.. I've used a much older file transfer back then but this has a nice simple interface. I've used this application for years for general use of file transfer, so I don't believe I have used any other advanced features that this application may have.

Other features are that you can do with this that is useful is to save server information. This is important and efficient for those who don't remember or don't want to type in credentials each time.

Another nice thing is that the navigation system on one has a tree hierarchy.

Clicking on the directories from the tree hierarchy, will open up the list of files on the pane below it. This is useful, having the dual visual, rather than having to get into the folder, and losing the visual of where you are in the hierarchy.

In addition, you can see your local files on the left, and server files on the right. So you can easily and conveniently drag and drop, or double click to transfer one to the other... instead of having to open a separate file directory application and transferring over.

Another useful feature is being able to choose a default file editor, instead of any native application text editor. Usually the built in editors aren't that advanced or even color coded, so using your own is great. It will open right up automatically when you click to edit.

Some other features is

- Keeping yourself logged in for awhile (instead of being logged out too soon).

- There's also log messages to help you know of the connect status when you initially connect, or any file transfer errors.

What do you dislike?

One of the slight things that could be made better is the navigation system for files. At least the prior versions, whenever I upload things, it seems to refresh repeatedly and it is harder to view where we left off or multitask. However this may be universal with other file clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a simple file transfer tool, this is pretty good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just general transferring files quickly with a GUI, (seeing a visual), if I don't want to use SSH.

"FTP without GIT"

What do you like best?

Filezilla is cheap and offers the ability to access our remote servers without the use of our hosting provider or using GIT commands. It makes changing and uploading small files easy.

What do you dislike?

It's basic, what i dislike is that it doesn't allow you to stay connected longer than 15 mins at a time, as it prompts you to log in each time 15 mins passes by.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are not comfortable with using GIT to access your server, Filezilla is a friendly free alternative!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Filezilla, we are able to make small changes and introduce our junior developers to the idea of GIT and what happens in the background through FTP. We are also able to make small changes such as images without having to access our IDE to do it.

"The Best FTP Client I Have Found So Far"

What do you like best?

The FTP client is simple to use and works well. There are numerous features that I use often, as well as plenty more that I have never even had a chance to try yet!I really like the ability to select how each upload is handle independently, I usually leave this feature on so that I can control how the uploads are handled independently. This is extremely useful for projects in which I might want to upload new files without overwriting any of the old files.

What do you dislike?

The update seems frequent and each time it leaves a downloaded version of the software on my computer. It would be nice if they were able to have the software update a bit more intuitively, less frequently, or more dynamically/automatically. There isn't really anything that I have found I dislike about this program that can't be adjusted or corrected by adjusting the settings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have found this to be the best FTP client to use, and is likely rated the best in the industry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use FileZilla to transfer files onto our server for eLearning content. We frequently need to update this content due to request from SMEs, or changes in policy or procedures. Using this software helps us make that quick and easy. I wish that the adjustable windows had a way to lock them into adjusting together, as this is not the default setting, but I would not be surprised that it is possible somewhere in the copious amount of features in the settings.

"FileZilla does everything I need."

What do you like best?

I like how easy FileZilla is to use. Simply open it up, enter your ftp credentials, and hit connect. That's all there is to it. It's easy to navigate and customize your views as well. I really like the fact that it doesn't cost anything to use, and is available on all systems, Mac, PC, and Linux.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the fact that I have to tell it to do certain things every single time, like overwrite files if I'm uploading. But that's probably better so I can make sure I'm not overwriting files that shouldn't be. The only other thing I don't like, is that if it gives an error on connecting, I'm not always able to tell what the error actually means.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for the easiest to use, and least confusing option for an ftp management program, FileZilla is you're best choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FileZilla makes it easy for me to connect remotely to the file servers of the websites I'm working on. It's also fast and easy to use. I use it in my business every day.

"Best FTP/SFTP App for Linux and OSX"

What do you like best?

It's just simple to drag and drop files from a remote location to your local disk and vice versa. Great UI and transfer files very quick. The other thing that I like in FileZilla is the posibility to use the App in Linux and OSX. It's also available for Windows users.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike nothing. It's very clear and simple and it's very customizable. You can feel that it's draining your internet connection, but you can configure the bandwidth. Years ago when I tried to use the App and I was transfer files the App frozes occasionally, today the App looks very solid.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try to use all the options that the software provides. I usually use FileZilla to transfer security files with SFTP.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When i need to transfer files to a remote location that's something that always FileZilla helps me to do it. There are users that are not familiar with CLI, so for them it's very useful to use an App like FileZilla to tranfer files.

"A goog FTP client but could improve the UI"

What do you like best?

It is safe, fast, fulfills what was promised. It is an FTP client that allows you to save several types of connections to different sites. For beginners it is very useful, multilanguage support. It has many software updates. I consider it to be the best FTP client that exists today.

If you are student a teacher or a profesional in Web development you will find Filezilla easy to use. Perfect to teach and perfect to learn.

What do you dislike?

I have been using this software for more than 6 years to manage Web sites. It has undergone improvements over time, but one aspect that could improve a bit more is the graphical interface, the interface to be in 2018 looks outdated, many applications try to be visually attractive. I would like that to see a change in the UI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IIf it is your first time trying to enter in the web development and you do not have a good idea how a ftp works, you will find filezilla perfect for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Updating websites through FileZilla to pages made in a cms is much faster than updating the files on the website page directly with the document manager that contains the cms.

In addition you can upload Wordpress code modifications without problems through this FTP client.

Filezilla I use it often with Putty, the two complement each other for the administration of websites that run under a Linux server.

"Upload files via FTP"

What do you like best?

Very simple to use, Filezilla is the best software of its kind because it allows you to upload and download files from servers via FTP connection. You can register several websites and export the list to xml for use on other computers.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to report if not the inclusion of a more complete internal html editor, the software is constantly updated and is free. It has everything you need to connect to a server and transfer files, but also to upload various websites online

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the best known and most used software for ftp transfers and there will be a reason, I recommend it to everyone because it's free, easy to use and does its duty, uploading entire websites to servers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I often transfer files on servers or load websites from the local computer to the hosting space purchased, a very simple process with Filezilla.

"FTP Access Through FileZilla"

What do you like best?

Overall I like the simplicity of adding your credentials to the site manager. You can plug in all your data for the host name, user name, password and port number and after everything has connect you can then add all this data with one click to the Site Manager. This will allow you to save all your data for next time. Its extremely useful. Next time you need to login in to your site simple just click the site manager and the site you wish to get in to and press connect and your done.

What do you dislike?

Its a love hate relationship with FileZilla. Most aggravating item I find is that almost every time I click to start the program theres an UPDATE. Don't get me wrong its better then never getting updates and the software never working but its pretty annoying to have to update the software on a regular basic. Again its a love hate relationship.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great overall Product Highly Recommend!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Biggest thing FileZilla saves time on is again the Site Manger where you can save all the credentials of each site you need to connect to. This saves tons of time not having to login in to a CRM or the site hosting account to find the credentials you need. Also, the offer a upload speed controller which you can adjust how fast everything is uploaded.

"The Conduit to Transfer Files"

What do you like best?

What I like best is the variety of components built into the application. Additionally, the ease of use is amazing. One of the great components is the import settings options. Many hosting companies now offer users to download an xml file that will apply the settings in Filezilla for your particular ftp account.

What do you dislike?

Almost everytime I open the application it offers and update - however the updates over the years have not seems to make a difference in the use of the application. There is room for growth I am sure - I'm not sure what is needed. If you import an xml settings file, Filezilla will not hold your password - I would prefer having my password saved on my computer since it is not accessible by others.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are using an FTP application of any sort (cyberduck etc) I strongly suggest Filezilla. Here are my reasons why: It has been around for a long time, therefore it looks like it will continue to be available for a long time to come. Other apps have come and gone and then the user has to learn a new one. Additionally, it frequently has security patches and will keep your ftp process safe. Lastly, this runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux alike - so your platform is not an issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Installing CMSs (i.e. WordPress, Joomla, Drupal etc.) which all require me to transfer the files first for a manual installation (which is my preferred route). Transferring HTML, CSS, JS files are accomplished this way as well. If I want to install a new theme on WordPress or update files within a given theme, then I do this with Filezilla.

"FTP Management"

What do you like best?

Very user friendly, the folder structure setup makes it feel like you're moving files around on your local computer, it also allows you to quickly drag multiple files instead of some I've used with individual "browse" selectors. Quick connect is definitely a plus, it's also very light weight and easy to set up. Basic windows design look.

What do you dislike?

The only downside is the constant updates, while very important for a secure ftp client, it's annoying for the general user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Set it up and try it out, with non-sensitive files if you're worried but there's no real downside to trying it out. Basic windows design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick, efficient, and secure transmission of files to and from our customers. Setup is easy enough that a quick email can get a customer ready to upload files. This allows for quicker, less painful design exchanges for reviews, which is typically a big time sink in the design process.

"A feature-rich FTP client suitable for professionals"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that Filezilla allows the user to save an endless amount of server profiles. In addition, the application offers a vast array of configuration settings that allow you the flexibility to make sure you can connect to any server needed.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were more options available as far as the bookmark feature was concerned. You can either have single server bookmarks or global bookmarks. I'd like there to be an option to set bookmarks based on a selected group of servers in addition to the other two options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, it's free! Apart from the price, the features available are hard to beat, even compared to paid products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I mentioned earlier, the bookmark feature is a life saver. Filezilla allows me to manage of cluster of 10 Linux servers, some of which have unique directory structures. Without directory bookmarks, I'm sure I'd be constantly forgetting the locations of where we keep our important files.

"Easy file management for your online server"

What do you like best?

The best feature i like about file zilla is the feature for drag and drop, organize the files in your online server and easily manage website content.

What do you dislike?

the look and feel of the software can be updated to make it feel more like explorer than any other file manager. This is the one feature that i dislike with filezilla

Recommendations to others considering the product

you will be looking for software to manage contents in your server and to have a log of all the connection and upload actions performed. Then filezilla is the best tool for you. The filezilla can be used to manage multiple web servers at once and can have two way file sharing. The filezilla can use ftp and secured ftp protocol to transfer file so your security is established and you can have peace of mind.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing online content in our server and uploading and updating the webpage is a tedious task. using filezilla we are able to manage these things and are able to efficiently control files in website.

"Very good FTP client, fast, reliable and multiplatform."

What do you like best?

It is a very reliable FTP client, fast connection, allows massive uploads to the server, transfer files in one way or both ways (upload and donwload at the same time) with a very intuitive graphical user interface. It is multiplatform and being open source is constantly updated by your community.

What do you dislike?

Some negative things is that it does not allow encryption of the data that is being downloaded and you can not automate processes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Aunque no es perfecto, para ser una opción gratis es muy completa y ofrece todo lo necesario que un cliente FTP debe tener.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It complies with what is necessary for what an FTP client is designed and it is also free, it has a good community, it is worth trying.

"Reliable budget and unbeatable cost."

What do you like best?

It's a very reliable file transfer and management tool. I use it primarily for FTP connections for website files. Its a free program so anyone can use it and it is available on all platforms such as Windows, Mac, and Linux. It can handle transferring really large amounts of files with good speed and reliability. I don't have to worry about errors.

What do you dislike?

Is not as pretty as Adobe products but when you consider the price you can't really complain about that. It may not be incredibly intuitive for someone who has never used a program for large file transfer before but it won't take them long to figure it out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Website file transfer and connecting to servers. This is a reliable low cost alternative for Adobe Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver does have additional website editing features but if you need to connect to FTP servers and make file changes then all you need is FileZilla. It's unbeatable for what it does. We use Adobe Dreamweaver as well but FileZilla is still great when you don't need the fuss and anyone I work with can access and use it because they can download it for free.

"Well Designed FTP Client"

What do you like best?

Great interface makes it easy to get up and running. Software is also regularly kept up to date with automatic updates. You can quite easily customise the interface to suit your needs as well. Works with both FTP and SFTP. It also supports multiple uploads and downloads so very good for sending many files at once. You can easily drag and drop files to make sending very easy to do. It is also free!!

What do you dislike?

I honestly can't think of anything i dislike about this product and is i nmy opinion the best one out there for FTP connection. That said it could probably have better integration with Google docs as there is no easy way to send these directly (which you can do using Cyberduck).

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is probably the best FTP client out there and will cater for 95% of your needs - if you use Google Docs then it might be worth having a look at Cyberduck as well which you can install a long side FileZilla.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a frequent sender and receiver of data files with different companies FileZilla has proved invaluable in transferring files between ourselves and clients in a safe a secure manner.

"The most common and useful FTP Client across all platforms"

What do you like best?

I am web apps developer so I need often file transfer tasks. I was using FileZilla for the last 5 years. In my company, we are also using it. the FileZilla is the easiest and useful client for file transfer over the server.

I like the best feature of FileZilla is "sync file browsing" using this feature you can make sync browsing between your local source o remote server source so you will always in the same file path.

another feature I like in FileZilla is FileZilla supports queue mechanism so if you feel somewhere you want to stop file transfering then you can do it without any problem.

FileZilla also supports maximum upload and download transfer so you will do upload and download of files in the faster way.

the Filezilla also have lots of good features like Bookmarks, Drag & drop support, Configurable transfer speed limits, Filename filters, Network configuration wizard, Remote file editing, Supports FTP, FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS) and SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) Cross-platform. Runs on Windows, Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X and more.

FileZilla also supports large file transfer I tested up to 4GB file.

What do you dislike?

almost I like FileZilla but The FileZilla client records FTP addresses, usernames, and passwords in plaintext (unencrypted). This means that a virus or malware can read this information if it infects a computer on which the Filezilla client is installed. Some types of malware specifically look for FTP addresses in plaintext files and try the text around them as usernames and passwords. but if you take care then Filezilla is not a bad client

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using FileZilla as a main file transfer client for my web application development and I can make my applications live on the server!

"Eazy Peazy FTP"

What do you like best?

Filezilla frequently updates the stuff that needs help in the background but in many years of operation, they have never moved around anything I need or even so much as asked me to reset a password. They make the updates seamless. I also love the interface and intuitiveness of the application. To me it is much easier to use FileZilla vs. the Dreamweaver FTP.

What do you dislike?

I dislike nothing about this app. I use it for one thing and it is perfect at performing this task. I could not ask for a more streamlined experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am so glad that I found FileZilla. I have actually become aware that many colleagues also use/love this application, so I do think the company is strong and will continue to thrive and make improvements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This app allows me to connect with our web provider's server to transfer the various pieces of our webpages

"El mejor cliente FTP"

What do you like best?

Gracias a este fantástico programa, puedo mantener actualizadas las ftp de cada uno de mis clientes en una misma pestaña de un solo vistazo.

Controlar los permisos de lectura, escritura y ejecución es muy fácil.

Subir archivos es muy fácil, con solo arrastrar y soltar.

What do you dislike?

En ocasiones he experimentado errores de autenticación.

Me gustaría poder almacenar cuentas en la nube por cualquier problema que pudiera tener en el equipo, que no sea necesario volver a configurarlas manualmente una a una.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Un imprescindible para todos aquellos desarrolladores y agencias de diseño web, recomendable y muy necesario.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo usamos para administrar las cuentas ftp de todos los clientes y va de maravilla. También lo usamos para configurar las acciones de cada archivo en el servidor.

"My go-to tool for server access."

What do you like best?

Ease of use is reliable and fast. The site manager keeps things nice and organized. It does what it says on the tin. It has the security features required, and has really never let me down in all the years I have used it.

What do you dislike?

Not much to comment on really, I have to restart it with an update?... really have no issues with the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's tricky to say anything more about FileZilla, it's just one of those go to tools you have in the toolkit for work. What I can say is its the easiest to use, allows clear management of files and assets and is simply fast and reliable. All you want in FTP/SSH transfer is it being fast and secure and this tool does a perfect job. I am very hard pressed to find anything wrong with it, or need for alternatives here.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy centralized management of web assets for free. Secure, fast remote access is all that is required for my business.

"Easy to use FTP client"

What do you like best?

FileZilla es one of the best FTP clients that I have found in the market to use on MAC and Windows

I really love the easy of use interface, pretty straightforward, all drag and drop features and super easy to configure parameters to connect to your server.

The backup feature of the configuration makes it pretty easy to migrate to another computer or send your settings to you full team in order for them to access the servers pretty easy.

What do you dislike?

The drag and drop features do not work when downloading files from server to local disk, it only works from local to server.

There is no mobile application, I think this feature could be really interesting in order to move or copy files to your cell phone. These days is important to be able to access information on the road and filezilla needs to evolve in this matter.

Even though the interface is easy to use it needs a refreshment to look like a new application...it looks kind of and old application

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just download it and be working in no time with your server.

Be careful to backup your settings after configuring all your connections on the application....this way you can just import your configuration to any computer and start working in no time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

File transfer to our multiple servers that we manage.

FileZilla helps improving file transfer time, no need for complicated training or something else

"best free ftp/sftp client"

What do you like best?

A little old fashion but classic user interface, easy to understand and use.

Free, open source and cross platform.

Support a lot of language.

Multitab support, can connect multiple ftp server at same time.

Compare files between local and server, and have Synchronized Browsing to ease your operate.

What do you dislike?

Don't have a "native look" in macOS.

Works well in ftp/sftp, but less protocol support than some morden competitor. can't connect to cloud storage platform.

Drag drop content from an outside application sometimes not work. need drop in finder first then into filezilla(not very sure It's a filezilla problem or a macOS problem).

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free, open source and have all the feature you will need to work with ftp/sftp. works on almost any desktop os you may use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Manage files on linux server using sftp. works out of box, don't need do much config, as long as ssh work, filezilla work.

"Transferring files by FTP with filezilla"

What do you like best?

Filezilla is in my opinion the easiest and easiest tool to use to mount an FTP server, it is the only thing that I have used it and it has been super useful, I have been able to transfer files in the network at high speed of transfer without any problem. even through a vpn with this tool has worked properly leaving me sastifecho with its functions.

What do you dislike?

I have no displeasure with this tool until now, it has fulfilled all my expectations and functions that I wanted to make, and it has left me with the desire to continue learning to improve its functions since I only use it to transfer files from a server to another, I have not made any other configurations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I fully recommend this tool, it is very easy to use, install, and configure, both the client and the server will not have any kind of difficulties, and is very intuitive, a simple graphical interface.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool is very useful for transferring files from my computers and other users' computers to an FTP server, it helps us to perform the function very simple and without any kind of complications.

"File Transferring So Much Easier!!!"

What do you like best?

It makes my life so much better! When i'm trying to move documents around into websites and out of websites FileZilla helps me keep track of where everything is at and where every file is going!

I like how you can save your own website data so you don't have to continue typing in the same information every time you access your own site.

When i am building a wordpress site on my local machine, FileZilla makes it painless to get that site loaded onto my internet server!

What do you dislike?

I think the display could be a little more appealing. Also, it would be nice having some kind of pop up screen to log in with. Other than that, there is not much i would change.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a great software!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It make the process of importing and exporting data to my websites simple and clean. Much faster productivity.

"Solid tool for FTP file management"

What do you like best?

Replace file feature when editing code of a file on a server and then saving changes.

What do you dislike?

Upload time-outs and repetitive replacement conflicts with exisitng files when uploading will continue to ask even after check the "apply to all files for this upload" box.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great, popular, and reliable option for FTP file managment. Uploading, downloading, transfers, moving files, browsing server files, editing and replacing files with saved edits are all features of the software, and work at a level up-to-par with typicall expectations.

Best feature I have experienced is that I can right click to edit in say Dreamweaver, then save my changes from Dreamweaver and Filezilla will recognize the file changed and with one click I have the revised file re-uploaded.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FTP file managment for direct access, editing and mangement of code files. (primarliy PHP, HTML, CSS) on WordPress websites, most often theme files.

"Straight forward tool for FTP"

What do you like best?

It's ease of use, no frills, and simple design. It's a product that works and works all the time, especially when you need it for the last minute service upload.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes getting to the main menu or setting default settings can be challenging.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A no-nonsense FTP client which gets the job done and not have to worry about configuration or modifying basic settings to get it working. It can be used with other in-depth features and advanced settings, but having outlasted most FTP clients over the years, this tried and true platform will be around until we stop using FTP.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using for server maintenance and uploading of files to web servers.

"Easy, Convenient FTP Uploading and Downloading"

What do you like best?

Single-click not only reconnects me back to the last server I connected to, it puts me back into the same place inside of the folder structure. Perfect for me because I most often want to be back at or near the same spot several steps into my folder structure.

Pane at the bottom of the screen shows me the progress of uploading or downloading. Easy to reorganize / create new folders. There are complaints about the appearance, but it resembles Windows File Explorer with 2 panes to drag / drop from - the left side is my computer, the right is the server.

What do you dislike?

Frequent update reminder windows. But realistically that should be a like because FileZilla provides constant security updates helping keep my computer safe.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a low cost, easy to use ftp program, you should definitely try out FileZilla. I've used it completely trouble free for over 10 years.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm a photographer and use FileZilla both to upload pages and images to my website. I also use it to transfer high-resolution photographs to publishers. FileZilla helps me keep my software costs down, a particularly important factor for free-lance photographers.

"Filezilla for FTP file sharing"

What do you like best?

I like that you can connect to multiple servers at the same time with multiple tabs and log ins. I like it that it saves the log in details using the Quickconnect log in option, so you can quickly log on without entering the password multiple times, and that it can be updated with a password change. Its great that files can be easily dragged and dropped from within the FTP screen and also dragged into other software. Its useful that you can rename files during the transfer process so when the file already exists in the receiving location, a pop up with multiple choices for the course of action.

What do you dislike?

I don't like it that it checks for updates every time I open the window as this slows down the opening on the product. Its not required as Its clear there is a new version available as it says it on the tabs once the software is open. I don't like it that its not possible to copy and paste a remote site link in from another source and it requires clicking through the tree structure to find the location.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a go. Its great and easy to use. It compares equally if not better to similar free software available. The user interface is so simple to use and easy for users to adapt to with little training.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this to connect to our ERP servers so it allows file sharing quickly and easily for all users with minimal setup. Its easy to use so even users with basic IT knowledge can use the product with little training required which is useful with new members of staff/new users.
