Before upgrading, make a backup copy of your FileZilla. After upgrading FileZilla Portable, just select Edit and then Import from the main menu and open up the file containing your old settings. FileZilla will then import your old settings and be able to use them. Some advanced settings like remote start directories will not be imported and you'll need to set them up again.
If you'd like to be able to have FileZilla launch another portable application to view or edit certain files, you can configure it using the following steps:. In the preferences tree, select Language within Interface Settings. Select your language of choice and click OK. The ability to run from a CD is built right in. Just extract FileZilla Portable to a local directory and run it at least once to generate a set of default settings.
Then configure it as desired. FileZilla itself does not like having its settings read only, so it will show some error messages, but it will work. We may copy the files locally in a later release to avoid the error messages, but there are security implications to that approach. The settings directory is currently used for configuration backups.
Add this key to cache not supported - The add this key to the cache feature that works with the modified version of PuTTY included with FileZilla saves to the registry and should not be used in a portable scenario.

FileZilla uses multiple FTP sessions. One session gets used purely to browse the server. The other sessions get used to do the file transfers.

For example, here is a simple car analogy: You order a pizza using your telephone aka the browsing connection , then you hang up the telephone. Then the delivery man drives the pizza in his car to your location the transfer connection.
While the pizza is transferring, you can phone somebody else, like for example your garage because your own car is broken ;. There are even servers restricting it to one connection at a time. But if you need access immediately, there is a workaround:. Note: If you limit connections to 1 only, there is a major drawback: You cannot browse the server anymore while a transfer is in progress!

However, this is not always possible - so don't rely on it. The server configuration is very similar to client configuration for active mode. In passive mode, the server opens a socket and waits for the client to connect to it. By default, FileZilla Server asks the operating system for the machine's IP address, and for a free port number. This configuration can only work if you are connected to the internet directly without any NAT router and if you have set your firewall to allow incoming connections on all ports greater than If you have a NAT router, you need to tell FileZilla Server your external IP address or passive mode connections will not work with clients outside your local network:.
If you do not want to allow incoming connections on all ports, or if you have a NAT router, you need to tell FileZilla Server to use a specific range of ports for passive mode connections. You will have to open these ports in your firewall. Depending on your router model, you can either forward a range of ports or you need to forward all ports individually.
Valid ports can be from 1 to , however ports less than are reserved for other protocols. Due to the nature of TCP the underlying transport protocol , a port cannot be reused immediately after each connection. Hence the range of ports should not be too small or transfers of multiple small files can fail. A range of 50 ports should be sufficient in most cases. Too many FTP connections at one time can result in connection issues. To prevent this, FileZilla Under Linux, the files starting with dot.
