What is FileZilla Client?

FileZilla is free and cross-platform FTP software, consisting of FileZilla Client and FileZilla Server. FileZilla Server supports FTP and FTPS (FTP over SSL/TLS).

About  (from FileZilla Project)

FileZilla is an FTP program for file uploading and downloading to and from your FTP site, server, or host. The program lets you transfer files and navigate among folders, Web sites, and your computer. This software enables you to perform multiple file transfers simultaneously.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named filezilla.exe. The setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 16.2 MB (16,983,899 bytes).
