Whoever manages files online today is doing so more and more frequently via an HTTP connection, which is not actually intended for file transfer. In order to upload or download files to web servers and file servers, the FTP protocol is actually intended.
For the transfer is an FTP client such as the open source software FileZilla to connect your computer to the FTP server. FileZilla is equipped with many functions and runs under Windows, macOS and Linux. In addition, the freeware is available in many different languages and is also one of the most popular open source programs.
Safe Download from Solutions Lane Download
If you download FileZilla directly from us and not from the manufacturer, you will get harmless files that are free of adware.

FTP client with simple operation, many features and high security
During the development, the manufacturer paid special attention to the fact that FileZilla is easy to use and at the same time offers a good range of functions. In fact, the Open Source program is intuitive to use while remaining versatile and flexible in terms of functionality. For example, you can use tabs to operate the FTP client, set and manage bookmarks and move the files by drag & drop just like in a file manager.
With this easy to use user interface, you can access the extensive features of the software. FileZilla supports the protocols SSL, SSH, SFTP and FTPS. In addition, the software provides customizable commands, timeout detection for lost connections, and a keep alive system. With the help of the FTP client, it is also possible to resume interrupted downloads and uploads as soon as the lost connection has been re-established. With FileZilla you can also manage your own FTP sites and update the files there after connecting using the FTP client.
The client software supports file sizes of up to four gigabytes. The settings also allow you to limit the transmission speed and use filters to sort lists by file name. A remote file search also allows you to search for corresponding files – and even edit them with the appropriate permissions. Firewalls and proxies are also supported. Despite the wide range of functions, FileZilla is not only aimed at professional users. The free software is also worth a look for interested parties and beginners in FTP.
FTP client for do-it-yourself and take-away use
The FTP client software is not only installable on many operating systems in 32- and 64-bit versions. Thanks to FileZilla Portable, which can be downloaded separately as a ZIP file, the tool can also be easily started from USB sticks or other removable media without installation. With the help of the source code of the open source software, which is also available, you can compile the program yourself if you wish – and provided you have the appropriate skills – or adapt the FTP client to your own requirements for the transfer of files.
Adware and Co.
If you download FileZilla directly from us, these files are free of dangerous adware.
On the manufacturer side there is a FileZilla version also with Adware. This may cause additional software to be installed on your computer during installation. If you download FileZilla from the manufacturer’s site, make sure that there are no fields that can be used to prohibit the installation of additional programs. The additional software is downloaded over the Internet and can therefore not be checked by us for viruses, spyware, Trojans or other malware.
If your antivirus software sounds an alarm, please take this seriously and cancel the installation.
Unfortunately, some adware installs itself unsolicited. If there is unwanted or harmful software on the computer despite your caution, AdwCleaner or CCleaner may be able to help. You can find more recommendations in our Special Adware & Remove Spyware section.
If you want to be absolutely sure that no adware is included, you have to download the source code of the open source software and compile it yourself.
