How to connect via FTP to your account using FileZilla

Posted April 7th, 2017    15951   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
  • 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 "Filezilla Configuration" button. Press it and you should download a "sites.xml" file.


  • Open FileZilla, and go to Settings. In the Transfer options set the Maximum simultaneous transfer to "3"


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


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

Note: Filezilla doesn't support multi-segmented downloading (which is different from simultaneous transferring).
If you need multi-segmented downloading, in order to maximize your FTP download speed, then refer to this guide
