Practice English Speaking&Listening with: How to configure FileZilla

Difficulty: 0

The quickest and easiest way to establish a connection between your local machine and a remote server using FileZilla is to simply use

the Quickconnect bar.

Let's type in the "Host" address

to the server we wish to connect to.

We then provide a username

as well as a password.

If you have a port number you will place that port number of this box. If you don't put anything there it will assume that it uses the default port

number, which is 21. Once you are ready to connect simply press the Quickconnect button.

Once the connection is established you can now begin transfering files, to and from your remote server,

and local machine.

Also, once you have established a connection with a remote FTP server,

those connections are maintained history. So, going forward you can always select the connection

and reconnect once again.

Now let's take a look at how to manage and maintain multiple connections in a more organized manner.

Select File > Site Manager...

As you can see I have already established a connection called "my website" and placed it under the My Sites folder.

You can create additional connections by pressing the "New Site" button

and providing the details for that connection, on the righ-hand side.

You can organize multiple connections into folders by pressing the "New Folder" button.

You can drag and drop folders to better organize them

into specific folders.

When ever you are ready to connect to one of your predefined connections,

you can use the pull-down menu on the upper left hand side. Select from the various connections that have established

and make the connection.

Congratulations, you now know how to set up your FileZilla FTP client.
