  1. I run my own web server and can FTP into it quite easily using Filezilla as long as I am local. I would like to connect outside of my local LAN but each time I try I'm coming up with all sorts of problems. Failed to retrieve directory listing. I will only connect to not.
  2. So, if you want to upload a larger file or transfer files, you need to download and use an FTP client like FileZilla. This open-source software helps you transfer local files to web servers and vice versa through its various transferring options. It consists of FileZilla client and FileZilla server.

FTP is not secure

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) uses clear text for all transmissions. Anyone is able to read the FTP usernames, passwords, commands and data by packet capture (sniffing) on the network. By default, RunCloud Firewall blocks FTP (port 21) at your server. You are recommended to use SFTP for file transfer instead.

Tip: You can use RunCloud File Manager in RunCloud panel for simple file management.

What is SFTP?

SSH or Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a secure file transfer protocol for file access, transfer, and management. It adapts the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol with encryption and secure authentication on both server and client.

SFTP provides two user-authentication options when connecting to your server: a)passwords or b)SSH2 key-based authentication. The SSH Keys is more secure than password.
