FileZilla

FileZilla

FileZilla is a multi-platform FTP and SFTP client with lots of useful features and an intuitive interface.

The software includes a site manager which allows the creation of a compilation of FTP sites, with individual setting for port, protocol, login details, starting directories etc. This functionality is similar to bookmarking/cookies included with popular web browsers, saving time when accessing popular sites.

FileZilla is divided into a series of window panes. Below the icons sits a message log which displays console-type output showing the commands sent by FileZilla and the remote server's responses

The file and folder view, displayed under the message log, provides a graphical interface whereby users with file management to locate files they wish to upload and download, using drag and drop.

The transfer queue, displayed along the bottom of the window, shows the real-time status of each queued or active file transfer.
