I have Confirmed that the recommended unattendedsilent command line does NOT work still, even for the current release 3.32.x and all others since i first reported it for v27.x, when executed via Powershell and(or) CMD.EXE: 'C:Program Files (x86)FileZilla FTP Clientuninstall.exe' /S via CMD.EXE. This raises major concerns for enterprise users. Example: filezilla -c 0/foo/bar/sl /ash connects to the user site sl/ash in the site directory foo/bar May not be used together with -s nor with URL parameter.a, -local Sets the local site to the given path. Example: filezilla -a '/foo bar/' -h, -help Displays a help dialog listing these commandline options.

fxdefaults.xml file (This will set specific settings for your environment)

--------------------------

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='yes' ?>

<!-- fzdefaults.xml documentation

The file fzdefaults.xml is used to provide system-wide default settings for
FileZilla.

Usage:

- Windows:

Put the file fzdefaults.xml into the same directory as filezilla.exe

- OS X:

Modify the app bundle, put fzdefaults.xml into the
Contents/SharedSupport/ subdirectory

- Other:

Put fzdefaults.xml into one of the following directories (in order of precedence):

- ~/.filezilla
- /etc/filezilla
- share/filezilla subdirectory of the install prefix.

Default site manager entries:

Create some new Site Manager entries and export the list of sites. Rename
the resulting XML file to fzdefaults.xml or copy the <Servers> block in it
to fzdefaults.xml. See example below.

Global configuration settings

Location of settings directory:

Command

By default, FileZilla stores its settings in the user's home directory. If
you want to change this location, modify the 'Config Location' setting (see
below).

'Config Location' either accepts absolute paths or paths relative to the
location of fzdefaults.xml
You can also use environment variables by preceding them with the dollar
sign, e.g. '$HOME/foo'.
Use $$ to denote a path containing dollar signs, e.g. 'c:$$foobar' if
settings should be located in 'c:$foobar'.
A single dot denotes the directory containing fzdefaults.xml

Kiosk mode

If the 'Kiosk mode' setting is set to 1, FileZilla will not write any
passwords to disk. If set to 2, FileZilla will not write to any
configuration file. The latter is useful if FileZilla gets executed from
read-only media.

Disable update check

If the 'Disable update check' setting is set to 1, the capability to
check for new FileZilla versions will be completely disabled.

-->

<FileZilla3>
<Settings>
<Setting name='Kiosk mode'>0</Setting>
<Setting name='Disable update check'>1</Setting>
</Settings>
</FileZilla3>

---------------------------

I’m going to skip some of the pictures, and go right to the deployment type & detection methods, look at previous posts for a template to go from.

Filezilla

In the Content Tab, make sure it is pointing to your ConfigMgr Content Source.

Filezilla Client Command Line

For Detection Method, File System. Each time it updates, I only have to change the Version Value, which makes it quite easy to update to the new version.
I have two detection methods, one for x86 machines and one for x64. I’m showing the one for x64

That should do it. You can now deploy the app.

Normal Install (not using the fzdefault.xml file)

Using the xml file :
The Update option doesn’t even show up in Settings.

This will even work if the user has already launched the application. The XML file in the program folder overrides user settings.

Happy Deployments!

Below you find a step by step guide, if you prefer you can watch our How to Transfer Files Using FileZilla/FileZilla Pro video tutorial.

FileZilla/FileZilla Pro copies files from one location to another using the Transfer Queue. This holds a list of all files to be transferred. There are a few different ways that you can mark files for transfer:

Drag and drop

  1. Select the files that you want to transfer. Use the SHIFT key to select a block of files; use the CTRL key (Windows) or CMD key (MacOS) to select multiple non-sequential files.
  2. Use your mouse to click and drag the selected files into the desired directory on the other site.

FileZilla/FileZilla Pro will add these files to the Transfer Queue and start the transfer immediately.

Select and add to queue
