The first time that the Administration interface connects to a host, a dialog windows will display the TLS certificate associated with the Administration interface, asking you whether you trust that certificate. Check if it has the same fingerprints as those created at startup.

You can find them in the log searching for SHA. Note: Under Windows you can find the log files in the sub-folder see section Windows Installation.

If you installed FileZilla Server locally the certificate can be trusted. Click Advanced tab, then enter the following details: To set the Default local directory , click Browse and locate the folder on your computer that will store your web page files. Click Connect. A short connection status report will display indicating if the connection is successful.

You will then be presented with a list of the files on the remote server and on your computer. Make sure you have Always trust this host, add this key to the cache checked so you will only have to accept the certificate once. To upload new files drag files from your computer Local site to the server Remote site.

The Pressable API allows you to communicate with your managed WordPress hosted Pressable site using an external application written in any programming language. Some of the things you can do after you…. By default, FTP will leave all data and transactions in a plain-text format, easily intercepted by users with network access. The username, password, and data being transferred can all be compromised very easily without configuring secured FTP over TLS.

This enables TLS support, but still needs to be configured. You can also change the port to something non-standard, which might be a wise decision considering you already changed the regular FTP port.

If you have an SSL certificate available, you can assign this certificate here. If you do not already have an open certificate, FileZilla Server allows us to generate a self-signed certificate right through settings menu. Fill out the form the same way you would fill out any other SSL certificate form, making sure to use your FTP server address as the common name for the certificate.

This assumes the domain is configured on the same server as the FTP server, and likely the same IP address. Once you have filled this information out, go ahead and generate the certificate. Select the generated file for the private key and certificate file. Add a key password if necessary. Take note of your updated port numbers, as we will need these to create firewall rules to allow remote access to our FTP server. If your firewall is configured properly, your FTP server should not be accessible to the public yet.

In order to allow remote access, we will have to manually add firewalls rules and exceptions for our ports.

To do this, open up up the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security application on your server and navigate to Inbound Rules. In the example below, we have the default ports 21 and configured.

Update these to match the ports that you configured earlier. Go ahead and click next through the rest of the menus and name your firewall rule. Select Finish to create our new rule.

Our FTP server should now be remotely accessible from any computer that is allowed to reach the server. Some servers may require you to make a firewall exception for the FileZilla program itself.

This will depend on your server settings and configurations, but is worth noting in case you run into issues accessing your server remotely. Before we can login to our server, we have to create a user and group for FTP and set which folders this user should have access to.
