FileZilla Server 1.6.1

FileZilla Server 1.6.1

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.

FileZilla Server Functionalities:

  • 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 FileZilla Server 1.6.1 (2022-12-07):

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • MSW: Fixed an installation issue due to a service handle not being closed

Changes in FileZilla Server 1.6.0 (2022-12-06):

New features:

  • UI: it is now possible to upload TLS certificates to the server directly from the UI, using a specific selector in the Security page of the protocols configuration.
  • UI: the maximum amount of characters in all text controls has been limited to a sensible number, so to avoid potential crashes or stalls in corner cases.

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • Fixed potential issues with locking of mutexes in the administration protocol
  • MSW: the installer now works properly also if the uninstaller from a previous installation has been deleted.
  • Fixed an issue in the networking code when dealing with TLS close_notify alerts.

Changes in FileZilla Server 1.6.0 RC1 (2022-11-29):

New features:

  • MSW: the installer now offers to keep the existing service configuration of a previously installed FileZilla Server whose release must be above or equal to 1.6.0.
  • UI: the main window position and size is now remembered across different runs.
  • UI: the server configuration can now be exported to a file and imported into another server. It is possible to select the specific parts of the configuration that are to be exported or imported.
  • UI: double-clicking on a item in the session list will pop up a dialog with security information about the session. The functionality can be also accessed via the context menu.
  • UI: file dialogs now remember the last used folder

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • UI: users’ group names are now sorted, with the active ones up in the list
  • UI: Clearly show when a session transfer is stalled
  • UI: it is now possible to cut/copy/paste numbers in the specific controls.
  • UI: Fixed various incoherencies in the state of the interface
  • UI: it is no longer possible to have the administration listeners conflict with the file transfer protocols servers listeners. In case of pre-existing conflicts in the configuration file, the administration listeners take precedence, so that it is still possible to change the FileZilla Server’s configuration.
  • UI: in some corner cases concurrently opening dialogs could cause instabilities. These dialogs are now queued up and opened sequentially.
  • *nix: fixed dependencies in the Debian installer
  • *nix: fixed installation directory of the icons
  • Fixed a crash on network errors while renewing Let’s Encrypt certificates
  • MSW: Communication with the impersonator child process no longer stalls or fails under heavy load
  • User-specific impersonation is now working again

Changes in FileZilla Server 1.5.1 (2022-07-29):

  • Fixed a crash if a session is closed and the data connection receives a connection error at the same time
  • MSW: The notification area icon now displays again in all display scale factors
  • Admin UI: Fixed switching from “Use system credentials to log in” to “Require a password to log in” not applying
