FileZilla Server is an FTP server that supports FTP and FTP over SSL/TLS. FTP over SSL/TLS provides secure encrypted connections to the server. FileZilla 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. It also supports on-the-fly data compression, which can improve the transfer rates. Unfortunately, the compression setting can have mixed results, so it is advised to use it with care. It is possible for files that are already compressed to be transferred over the network using more than their original data size.
FileZilla Server 0.9.51 changelog:
- The code that checks that the peer's data connection IP address matches the control connection IP had been nonfunctional. Vulnerability discovered and reported by Amit Klein.
- Added option to force TLS session resumption on the data connection to prevent data connection stealing
- FileZilla Server now randomizes the port used for passive mode transfers to mitigate data connection stealing when using plain FTP
- Added diagnostic message to the administration interface if FTP over TLS is disabled and if the configured certificate is expired or otherwise invalid
- Added diagnostic message to the administration interface if no passive mode IP has been configured and the server appears to be behind a NAT router
- The settings dialog layout had a spring cleaning. The security settings, passive mode settings and TLS settings pages have received the most cleanup.
