FileZilla Server 1.8.1

FileZilla Server 1.8.1

FileZilla Server is a free, open source server for Microsoft Windows. The Client not only supports FTP and FTP over TLS (FTPS) and SFTP which provides secure encrypted connections to the server.

A user connections manager allows the administrator to view currently connected users and their uploads/downloads. At present, there are two operations the owner of the server can do to those transfers: to “kill” the client session or to “ban” the user’s IP address. This manager shows the real-time status of each active file transfer.

FileZilla software supports SSL, the same level of encryption supported by your web browser, to protect your data. When using SSL your data is encrypted so that prying eyes cannot see it, and your confidential information is protected.

Server also supports on-the-fly data compression, which can improve the transfer rates. Support for SFTP is not implemented in Filezilla Server.


  • Upload and download bandwidth limits
  • Compression
  • Encryption with SSL/TLS (for FTPS)
  • Message log (for debugging and real-time traffic information)
  • Limit access to internal LAN traffic or external internet traffic only

Changes in Version 1.8.1 (2024-01-25):

New features:

  • Limits to the number of active sessions defined for the groups now apply to the group as a whole, not just to the individual users belonging to those groups.
  • Fixed bug that led to timeouts not being set at startup, but only when changing the configuration.

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • FTP Server: NLST would report a file names with a leading ./ path in certain cases, which confused some clients. Fixed.
  • UI: Fixed bug that caused the Administration Interface to misinterpret native paths in the mount lists in case the server were running on a machine with different path semantics than the Administration Interface’s one.
  • UI: fixed regression that led to some message dialogs not being displayed.
  • Fixed regression that caused disabled mount points with empty native paths to be discarded.
  • Fixed conversion to utf8 of virtual paths, which was wrongly misinterpreting some native encodings.
  • In case of login failure, the login timeout resumes counting down for the remaining time.

Changes in Version 1.8.0 (2023-12-11):

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • The autoban feature no longer bans clients with correct credentials that cannot log in due to exeeded connection limits
  • Report correct timestamps of mount points in directory listings
  • Fixed regression introduced in 1.8.0 resulting in “Do not require authentication” not working

Changes in Version 1.8.0 RC2 (2023-11-17):

Fixed vulnerabilities:

  • Fixed regression related to path handling
  • Fixed off-by-one buffer overflow in handling of IPV6 addresses.

New features:

  • Admin UI: sessions IPs and user names can now be independently copied into the clipboard.
  • Added option to disable the automatic renewal of Let’s Encrypt certificates.

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • Fixed bug in the updater that caused it to report new beta releases even if explictly told not to.
  • User-provided certificates are now tested before being applied, so that the server always stays in a functioning state
  • Fixed potential issues in the impersonator process
