How to Connect Using FTPS, FTPES, SFTP, and FTP in FileZilla

One of the big benefits and features of SmartFile is the ability to access your files through FTP or securely through FTPS, FTPES, or SFTP. SmartFile users can easily connect through any of these methods using their existing site URL, username, and password. I will walk you through how to connect to each through FileZilla. It’s very simple, so let’s get started!

1. When logged in thru FileZilla, select the site Manager icon in the far upper left hand of the toolbar.
2. Click ‘New Site’





That’s it, you are now connected to FTP, FTPS, FTPES, or SFTP in seconds. Drag and drop entire folder directories, manage files and folders, or upload unlimited size files. The connections will resume if you are disconnected, so that’s a big plus.

If you currently use or need a better secure FTP provider, try SmartFile for free. Our system is built on FTP and we provide the best user management and permissions for restricting access. Always remember to share smart!
