FileZilla Server 1.4.1

FileZilla Server 1.4.1
Download FreeDownload

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 1.4.1 (2022-05-05):

  • Admin UI: Fixed a crash on the listener page
  • Admin UI: Improved workflow for changing user passwords
  • MSW: Fixed an issue with the converter for configurations from FileZilla Server 0.9.x

Changes in FileZilla Server 1.4.0 (2022-04-29):

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • Debian: by default the service is now configured to exclude headers from log lines, since journald outputs its own headers already.
  • Mac: fixed regression that made the installed service not startable
  • Admin UI: changed wording in the logging settings
  • Admin UI: made default connection values correct, in case the settings file is missing.
  • MSW: fixed various bug in the ExecDos plugin, that could cause the admin password not to be set properly.
  • MSW: non-ASCII admin passwords can now be properly used.
  • MSW: fixed a bug in libfilezilla that caused an unexpected failure when creating directories with restricted access. It had effects on the ACME account creation.

Changes in FileZilla Server 1.4.0 RC1 (2022-04-20):

Fixed vulnerabilities:

  • MSW: the installer doesn’t rely on the PATH environment variable to find the tools its needs, but refers to them absolutely, to avoid hijacking.

New features:

  • The size of the TCP buffer sizes on the sockets used for data transfers can now be specified
  • Configuration files are now tagged with a “flavour” and a version number. The Server will refuse to load configuration files with a different flavour than its own or with a version higher than its own. The server’s option –config-version-check can be used to control this functionality: if specified, the server checks the versioning, performs the required action and then exit, unless its action is ‘ignore’. If the action is ‘error’, it just checks whether the versions are ok. If the action is ‘backup’, then a backup of the files is made if the versions are not ok. The parameter –config-version-check-result-file is used to specify a file in which the result of the version check has to be put. If the file contains ‘ok’, then everything went file. If the file contains ‘error’, then there was an error. If the file contains ‘backup’, then a backup was made. The installer makes use of this functionality.
  • Admin UI: the selected log entries can now be copied to the clipboard, in CSV, HTML and plaintext formats through the context menu
  • Admin UI: the settings dialog layout has been changed to accomodate for future other protocol settings, factoring out the settings that are common to all protocols.
  • Admin UI: adjusted borders and spacing to look better on HiDPI displays.
  • Admin UI: preserve the fingerprints of the previously connected servers. The connection dialog gives hints when inputing the host and port.
  • Log files can optionally be rotated daily instead of by size
  • Added option to specify a default user to impersonate if a user logs in with an account that does not use impersonation

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • MSW: The installer not detects and rejects 32bit Windows
  • MSW, Admin UI: No more double error message when a validation error occurs
  • Admin UI: Solved a crash and fixed other bugs related to minimzing the main window to the notification area
  • Server: –write-config option now also updates the users and groups configuration files
  • Server: the log contains more detailed info about which configuration files have been saved
  • Admin UI: the controller used for editing numbers now correctly accepts negative integers
  • The network config wizard’s text has been updated to be more explanatory and intuitive
  • Self signed certificates don’t require a 2nd level domain anymore
  • Admin UI: the system user is now always at the top
  • Admin UI: more meaningful message if the password is empty
  • Admin UI: message dialogs now always have a reference to the top window
  • FTP: QUIT needs to respond with 221, not 200
  • Bug fixes to the internal HTTP library
  • MSW: the installer now correctly displays the progress bar in all cases
  • Fixed a confusing error message in some situations if trying to list non-existing directories

Changes in FileZilla Server 1.3.0 (2022-02-14):

New features:

  • Configuration wizard to setup passive mode
  • Linux: Warn if sysctl knob kernel.yama.ptrace_scope is 0
  • Linux: Refuse to run if sysctl knob fs.protected_hardlinks is 0

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • Admin UI: Rejecting a certificate fingerprint prompt no longer triggers automatic reconnects

Changes in FileZilla Server 1.3.0 RC1 (2022-02-03):

Fixed vulnerabilities:

  • The internal tool filezilla-server-crypt now accepts the password from stdin, not anymore as a parameter, to avoid password leaking.
  • Mountpoints are now impossible to rename or delete.

New features:

  • The configuration files can now be reloaded without shutting down the service first. To make it work, send the SIGHUP signal to the service process on nix, send the paramchange control message to the service on Windows (i.e. ‘sc control filezilla-server paramchange’).
  • The UI now automatically attempts to reconnect to the server if the connection is lost
  • MSW: users are now case-insensitive
  • Mac: created an installer
  • Display the administration TLS certificate fingerprints at installation time, so that they can be taken note of.
  • Negotiate custom ALPN with FileZilla Client, this allows saving a few round-trips during connection establishment

Bugfixes and minor changes:

  • Warn if no administration password has been given during installation.
  • In TVFS, fixed implicit root “/” not being accessible, trac #12617.
  • In TVFS, an implicit mountpoint whose parent is non-recursive is now able to be listed and cwd’d into.
  • Solved off-by-one bug in path normalization.
  • Reported filesystem errors are permanent, hence use 5yz error codes rather than 4yz error codes in command replies.
  • Permissions are now correctly updated in the UI when the current selected user changes.
  • Fixed regressions in the UI related to the TLS certificates generation.
  • MSW: the installer now correctly support the /D parameter, used to define a different default installation directory from the command line.
  • Debian: the installer now asks for an administration password.
  • Errors during ACME certificates generation are now properly displayed in the UI.
