Introduction

What is sFTP?

SFTP or secure FTP connection represents a secure way to download/upload your files from a Seedbox using an encrypted/secure FTP connection on port 2222 on our new templates and port 22 on old ones.

What are FTPs?

FTPs or File Transfer Protocol over TLS represents a secure way to download/upload your files from a Seedbox using a TLS-encrypted FTP connection on port 21.

In this quick guide, we’ll show you how to log into your Seedbox securely and transfer files using sFTP/FTPs protocols.

Different platforms

We strongly recommend Filezilla as your default client for sFTP and FTP connections.

Why? Because Filezilla is supported on every operating system ( Windows, Linux, OSX…).

The procedure for logging is the same on every platform, so just follow the steps below no matter what platform you are using.

Download and Configure

Download FileZilla FTP client for the platform that you are using:

Windows:

FileZilla Win 64bit version and FileZilla Win 32bit version.

Linux:

FileZilla Linux 32bit version or FileZilla Linux 64bit version.

MAC OS X:

FileZilla Mac OS X version.

Bear in mind the FileZilla site detects your client type and automatically provides you with the right client software. If you are looking to download a client for a different platform, you can search it over: https://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/
