How to connect via FTP to your account using FileZilla

Posted April 7th, 2017    9442   1   getting started ftp filezilla

FileZilla, is a neat and lightweight ftp client, which is available for Windows, MacOSX and Linux

We made it very simple to configure it, and it is simple to use.

In detail:

  • Download and install FileZilla. We suggest using version 3.6 as problems have been reported with version 3.7
  • Login to your client area. After you log in to your seedbox account, click in the "My Client Area" button.


  • Click the little gear icon next to the seedbox that you want to download its ftp configuration and then click at "Manage Seedbox".


  • Go down to the "Seedbox" tab. Next to the "FTP Access" section you will see a "Download Filezilla configuration" button. Press it and you should download a sites.xml file.


  • Open FileZilla, and go to the Preferences. In the Transfer options set the Maximum simultaneous transfer to "10"


  • Go to File > Import
  • Choose the file sites.xml that you just downloaded and choose OK when FileZilla will ask for confirmation to import the Site Listings
  • After you receive a successful message, that the import is complete, go to File > SiteManager


  • Choose the entry with your servername, and click "Connect"
