Once you've installed FileZilla on your computer, connecting to your server via FTP or SFTP (see: KnownHost Knowledgebase: What is the difference between FTP and SFTP?) can be done two ways. We'll cover adding/connecting your server via Site Manager.
This section was written using FileZilla v3.22.1 and Linux. Once the program is open the interface should be essentially the same as for other platforms.
As mentioned above, it is strongly recommended to limit the number of simultaneous connections that the ftp client will be opening. Otherwise, your IP could become blocked in the firewall for having too many connections open at once.2) But if you limit the connections yourself, then the firewall is less likely to need to limit it for you. If eight is not low enough, you may want to try even lower, at one or two. If you are transferring a lot of files at once, another protocol such as Web Disk might be more appropriate. Although many ftp clients will permit batch-copying many files, ftp was designed for copying one file at a time.
If you have already configured an ftp account in FileZilla and need to readjust the connection limit, the following steps should work in version 3.22.1:3)
