Every so often, we have the need to securely transfer large files between very remote systems, and the simplest way to do this is via FTP with the FileZilla client. Of course the FTP protocol by itself isn’t secure, but if you enable FTPES, it generally is. FTPES however requires a SSL certificate, and while you could allow the FileZilla server to generate it’s own self signed certificate, we like to use our existing wildcard SSL certificate which requires a few extra steps, as detailed below.

  1. Download the current version of FileZilla Server.
  2. Perform a Standard install accepting all defaults.
  3. Copy the domain’s wildcard certificate in PEM format (i.e. and the wildcard’s key file (i.e. to “C:Program Files (x86)FileZilla Server”. (see HOWTO: Generate and self-sign Wildcard SSL certs in Ubuntu if you need to convert your existing PFX wildcard certificate to PEM format).
  4. Open Settings in the FileZilla Server management interface and navigate to SSL/TLS settings.
  5. Select “Enable FTP of SSL/TLS support”.
  6. Browse and select the key file you copied above for the Private Key file.
  7. Browse and select the PEM file you copied above for the Certificate file.
  8. Select “Force PROT P to encrypt file transfers in SSL/TLS mode”.
  9. Adjust any other options as required (i.e. password protecting the management interface until “Admin Interface Settings” or enabling MODE Z support under File Transfer compression).
  10. Select Users from the Edit drop down menu and create your users and access rights as required.
  11. Stop and restart the FileZilla Server service.
  12. Open the FileZilla FTP Client, and connect to via FTPES to the FQDN of the FileZilla Server (i.e. ftpes://, along with the username and password combination you just created).
  13. If you configured SSL/TLS correctly using the above steps, the FileZilla FTP Client should prompt you if you wish to trust this certificate – select “Always trust certificate for future sessions” and click ok.

In this article we will show you how to setup a connection to your FTP Today site using FTPS in FileZilla. This information is provided as is and can change at any time. With FileZilla is open click the site manager button to create a new site connection. With the Site Manager window open click the 'New Site' button. If using explicit FTPS, the client connects to the normal FTP port and explicitly switches into secure (TLS) mode with 'AUTH TLS', whereas implicit FTPS is an older style service that assumes TLS mode right from the start of the connection (and normally listens on TCP port 990, rather than 21). If this happens, it’s usually caused by either an outdated version of FileZilla, or because the firewall or router on your computer has trouble with TLS (a form of encryption) for FTP connections. First of all, make sure you’re using the latest version of FileZilla (or try another free FTP program like Cyberduck). You need to do a couple of things, allow Established and Related connections though your firewall, also open up data ports to transfer data. FTP doesn't solely work on port 21. You need to set your minimum and maximum passive ports and NAT them also to your FTP server. Ive already set the port range as 20:21 got no luck there.
