FileZilla does not have any command line arguments (nor any other way) that allow automatic transfer. See: Command-line arguments (Client) https://trac.filezilla-project.org/ticket/2317 Though you can use any other FTP client that allows automation. For example, WinSCP: https://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_automation A typical WinSCP script (script.txt)...

Is there a way to see the size of a directory and its content with the Filezilla client? Recursive totals are not implemented for casual usage. Directory totals are below each filelist. Number of items and total size for that directory is shown. To get correct results do not have any filename filters enabled. In case you mean recursive totals, that will not ...

By default, the executable is /usr/bin/code If for some reason it was installed in a different directory, from a terminal type: which code And it will tell you the path to the executable.

FileZilla does not support duplication (copying) of remote files. Neither by drag&drop nor any other way (menu, keyboard shortcut). One of the reasons is a lack of support for this operation in majority of the FTP and SFTP servers. There's actually no standard way to duplicate a remote file over FTP or SFTP protocol. Some FTP and SFTP servers support ...

If the private SSH key already exists, this can be done from within FileZilla, without the need to install extra software. Simply go to menu Edit → Settings → Connection → FTP → SFTP. Click button Add key file and add your private key there. It will convert the key for you.

To establish a data connection for a file transfer or a directory listing, an FTP client (in the passive FTP mode) sends PASV command to the server. The server responds with its IP address and port number. The client should connect to that IP/port to initiate the transfer. It's quite common though that the FTP server is behind a NAT. And it's aware of its ...

Had this problem also, just go to file ->site manager. On the encryption drop down change to "use only Plain FTP (insecure). And that's it!

FileZilla does not support automatic file/folder synchronization: https://trac.filezilla-project.org/ticket/1591 All it can do is to highlight differences between local and remote folder. See View > Directory comparison. If you need automatic folder synchronization, you have to use a different FTP/SFTP client. For example WinSCP supports directory ...

No. IF you get the file from https://filezilla-project.org/, you are safe. If you get filezilla from other site, maybe, could be infected. https://blog.avast.com/2014/01/27/malformed-filezilla-ftp-client-with-login-stealer/ Malformed FileZilla FTP client with login stealer Beware of malformed FileZilla FTP client versions 3.7.3 and 3.5.3.

While this question is old, there's no really comprehensive answer. So I'm adding one. In the passive FTP mode (the most common mode nowadays), the FTP server listens on port 21 for an FTP control connection. But for all data transfers, including directory listings, it listens on an additional port. The port is picked out of a configured port range. If you ...

Some, but not many, FTP servers support SITE EXEC command. You can enter that in FileZilla using Server > Enter custom command. E.g.: SITE EXEC tar -zxvf myarchive.tar.gz Other than FTP, FileZilla supports only SFTP protocol, which does not have any way to execute command on the remote side. Though it is common that if you have an SFTP access, you also ...

This works on FileZilla 3.10.3...Connect to the site then click the lock icon in the lower right hand corner of the window. That will display the fingerprint and other information.

For Filezilla 3.14 this option is under: View -> Filename filters... Here is the dialog (with GIT, bower_components and node_modules custom rules): As you can see SVN exclusion is now available by default. GIT and others has to be added manually with Edit filter rules... button. Here is how rules editor looks (with GIT rule as an example):

In the latest version, you can find the settings at Transfer > Default File Exists Action

On my machine (windows) the default is for Vagrant's sftp to be available on port 2222. So, from Filezilla, I use: host: 127.0.0.1 port: 2222 protocol: sftp logon type: normal (with the default user and password being "vagrant")

Drag&Drop from FileZilla remote panel to Windows Explorer requires a "copy hook" shell extension. That kind of shell extensions got broken in Windows 10 version 1803. So all applications that rely on them were broken (not only FileZilla). There is even an announcement on FileZilla website: Microsoft broke the ICopyHook interface in Windows 1803. ...

My answer vs. OP's answer I'm writing this answer when the solution has already been found by OP. The aim of my answer is to explain what the problem was to help future users with similar problems. Existing answer gives a solution but no insight. This is the answer: Solution was to change the transfer type from Auto to Binary. Transfer menu > Transfer ...

I came across this issue today and was able to decrypt it by the following steps: Open FileZilla Edit > Settings > Interface > Passwords Select "Save passwords" instead of "Save passwords protected by master password" enter your master password. This will decrypt the passwords to base64. Export your site and use a online tool to decrypt the base64 ...

SourceForge is wrapping the actual program in a crapware installer. This might well trigger your AV scanner. To circumvent this, select the "Show additional download options" link on the FileZilla homepage. The link on this page has the ?nowrap parameter and should be free of unwanted additions.

One obvious solution is to download the file to a temporary local directory and upload it to the target directory. It's not always possible for you to write to the target directory if your account does not have write access. So "copying" to the target directory is not always possible.

Recent versions of OSX have the ssh-agent built-in and there is no need to start it separately. In my case I simply had to change the logon type to "interactive" in the sites settings in FileZilla and choose SFTP as the protocol. FileZilla apparently talks with the ssh-agent and handles the authentication. This is better than importing the key to ...

That's a general problem. FTP protocol does not support any standard file locking mechanism. It's possible to workaround that by uploading a file to a temporary file name; and rename it to a final name once the upload is done only. In case the SFTP protocol is an option for you, WinSCP SFTP/FTP client can do this transparently for any upload. Unfortunately, ...

I faced the same issue many times, and when the hosting provider and filezilla forums couldn't help, i myself tried digging it deeper to figure out the exact problem. Putting it altogether for you all.. There are mainly two scenarios under which you can face this issue.. First: Server you are trying to access doesn't support connection over TLS. Second: ...

Command: PASV Reply: 227 Entering Passive Mode (XX,XX,XX,XXX,166,216) Command: MLSD Reply: 425 Can't open data connection for transfer of "/" The data connection port on your FTP server is not accessible. The port number for this specific connection was 42712 (=166*256+216). But in general, there's a port range. So that whole port range needs to be ...

The connection is most probably blocked by the Windows firewall. While the Windows firewall is automatically configured with rules for the ports 21, 990 and 1024-65535, when IIS FTP server is installed, the rules are not enabled initially. To enable or change the rules, go to Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Firewall > Advanced Settings > ...

This is a server-side issue, and it did not appear previously because earlier versions of FileZilla shipped with a GnuTLS version that didn't make this check. Quoting Tim Kosse's post in the FileZilla forum thread: In any case, the problem is with your server's X.509 certificate chain: Either the server certificate itself or another certificate in the ...

In the latest FileZilla version there is an additional checkbox "always perform this action". Once you chose an option as default, you can change this choice (or reset to "ask") under Edit > Settings > Interface -- Behaviour.

There are two things I'd suggest trying which might explain the difference: First try changing Filezilla from PASV / PASSIVE mode to ACTIVE mode. If that doesn't work, try connecting without encryption in Filezilla (unencrypted FTP may be what Windows explorer is using but Filezilla appears to be using TLS encryption). I recommend using encryption for FTP, ...

Alternatively to displaying hidden files/folder, you may find it easier to navigate there directly. CMD+Shift+G will display a dialogue box to enter the path. Then enter ~/.ssh, and you're in. If you enter the path to a file in an Open/Save window and press enter, it will choose that file to be opened/saved.
