Hi all,
I have Filezilla Server on windows xp and it works good. I recently setup a Ubuntu 10.04 computer. There is a HUGE need for Filezilla FTP Server for Ubuntu! I read all kinds of posts online with people asking for Filezilla FTP Server for Ubuntu Linux. Seriously, there is no other good option for Ubuntu users. I tried vsftpd server, CrushFTP Server, CrossFTP Server, GADMIN-PROFTPD Server, and PureFTP Server, and NONE of them would setup or work. All I need is an FTP server to receive files from a device on the same lan. I don't even need internet connections to it. That's what I really like about Filezilla FTP Server, it is easy to install, and it "just works". I'm not kidding, there are tons of people on the web with the same complaint about needing a good GUI FTP Server for Ubuntu. Many people are specifically asking for Filezilla FTP Server for Ubuntu. I know you do have the Filezilla Client for Ubuntu, and that's great, but I need the Filezilla FTP Server for Ubuntu. I'm surprised that Filezilla doesn't make an FTP Server for Ubuntu? I would GLADLY pay for a Filezilla FTP Server version for Ubuntu.

Filezilla FTP Server is the BEST FTP Server out there, share the love with us Ubuntu users.....Please!

The current FZ Server code cannot be ported to *NIX. Too much Windows dependencies in there. To make it multi-platform, a complete rewrite is required (as already happened with the client). Unfortunately, the development focus is almost entirely on the client right now.

You can run FileZilla Server on Linux using Wine. Besides that, what boco said.

Hi All,
I just wanted to let you know that I installed Wine on my Ubuntu 10.04 desktop computer, and am running Filezilla FTP server that way. I have been running Filezilla on Ubuntu for a few weeks now, and it is working great. It was a little tricky trying to figure out how to set the default drive and directory on Filezilla, to receive the files, but once I got it set, it has worked very well. The different file structures of Ubuntu vs. what Filezilla expected to be windows, was the confusion. But, I just wanted others to know, that you CAN run Filezilla FTP server on Ubuntu, through the "Wine" emulator, and it does work quite well.
(That being said, I still look forward to a Ubuntu Linux version of Filezilla FTP Server)

If you just need to get the files, you just need a client. Have your other system be the server. Then pull the file.

Hi all,
Like I said previously, I need to use Filezilla Server, not the client.
I am using Filezilla Server on Ubuntu 10.04, by using Wine, but when the power goes
out and the Ubuntu computer re-boots, Filezilla does not automatically
restart. (and my security cam video clips can not FTP to the Filezilla Server
on the Ubuntu computer)
Is there a way to have Filezilla Server start automatically when Ubuntu
boots up? I can't figure out a way to do it because it is running under
Wine? I tried the setting in Ubuntu that you tell it to start any program
currently running, but it won't start Filezilla on reboot. Again, I think
the problem is that it is running under Wine.
If anyone knows of a way to do this, please let me know.

-Thanks
