Filezilla - How do I connect?

Postby natasja123 » 31. October 2006 09:21

I installed xampp on my clients server and I have set Filezilla up but i have no idea how to connect to it to do an ftp?
I have remote access to their server and I can access the xampp page but how do I go to filezilla and ftp files across?

You would have set up the ftp server with a user name and a password for you to access the server I assume.

Note: For security you should disable anonymous connections.

You use an ftp client to connect to an ftp server.

FileZilla has a free ftp client:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla

Which you can easily configure to connect to your friends FileZilla ftp server on port 21 with an address like:
ftp.yourfriendssite.com
or your friends IP

Username - you set in the server
password - you set in the server

Or you can use a browser in much the same way.
ftp://yourusername@ftp.yourfriendssite.com
You will be prompted for the password you set up in the ftp server

or use the IP in the browser:
ftp://username@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/

You would change the address of the ftp server you set in the FileZilla settings in the above instructions.

Post back if you get stuck.

I have the same problem. Everything is set, as far as I know, and port 21 is listed as being open. I've created a user (me) and can log on the local computer with ftp://localhost, but can't access the ftp at all via the IP.

With a remote computer it's just the opposite. I can access the xampp site and another site with the ip, but can't access the ftp at all.

when I type (from a dos prompt ftp):
Code: Select all
open <ip to host>

it gives me :
Code: Select all
Connected to <ip to host>

Then after about 10 seconds it says:
Code: Select all
Connection closed by remote host.


Any ideas?

If you have NAT routers, you must use passive ftp (ftp.exe can only active ftp).

Truth to tell, I don't use a router at all. I have a hub on the system in question which connects directly to the cable modem.
