How to use FileZilla?

The utility has gained popularity due to its reliable operation combined with ease of use. After downloading and installing FileZilla on your computer, all that remains is to connect it.

Connecting is not difficult: the easiest way to do this is using the "Site Manager". Access the "Manager" from the "File" menu, click the "New Site" button, and create a new account. Then enter the login, password, and host name for the server, which you have in the email sent by the server administrator. Click "Connect," and that's it.

When working with FileZilla, the left part of the window displays files on your computer, and the right part displays files on the remote server. Exchange occurs by simply dragging files with the mouse or using keyboard commands.

It is very convenient that you can choose the data transfer mode. There are three options: for files, for images, and automatic. In automatic mode, the program determines the file type for transfer itself, but in some cases, it may not work correctly. Then you can choose the transfer type yourself.
