Filezilla Client

I have a question about deploying FileZilla Client.
I wonder if I can put the S/W GUI and FileZilla Client program developed through Linux on USB and distribute it.
(Not modifying or using the FileZilla Client program for development, just using FTP functionality.

If it is not a license or copyright issue because we need to access our product's server through FileZilla Client and download and upload data, we would like to distribute it via USB with our product GUI.
If there is a problem, please let me know and I will reflect it.

Thank you.

FileZilla is distributed under the Terms and Conditions of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2+

In addition to the license, FileZilla is a registered trademark, you also have to comply to the trademark policy.

"You may distribute unchanged official binaries (i.e., the installer file available for download for each platform and not the program executable) downloaded from to anyone in any way, subject to governing law, without receiving any further permission. Remember that FileZilla is distributed under the GNU GPL license, and you must comply with its requirements."

What this means is that if you don't change the brand or modify the software of filezilla (only using FTP server), you can distribute it without permission,

Yes, provided the other paragraphs are followed as well. In particular, keep your distribution updated, always distribute the most recent version.
