Filezilla Server 0.9.60.2 Install wont run on server 2008

#1 Post by Stuperfied » 2019-10-14 12:00

I just downloaded Filezilla Server 0.9.60.2 and tried to run the file but it wont run. I did try run as administrator and selecting compatibility as XP but that also didn't work. Nothing at all happens when I try to run the install.

can you suggest a compatible version?

Operating system: windows server 2008 SP1 32bit
CPU: Intel P4 2.4GHz
Motherboard: P4i65G
Motherboard bios version: 1.4
RAM: 2GB

Windows Vista (and it's server rebrands) are not supported. FileZilla Server requires Windows 7 or newer.

I thought windows server 2008 was built on windows 7, apparently not. Were there any historical versions of Filezilla which supported it and what is the oldest windows server still supported by filezilla? Im working with a p4 here so obviously im a bit restricted in that I can't use windows server 2019.

Outdated versions are especially and particularly not supported. It's time you buy new hardware.

Got it!

Here goes IIS. How well does the client work with IIS ftp?

That's the wrong question to ask. The correct question is: How well does IIS follow the protocol specifications, so that it works with each, any and all FTP clients?

Not very well.

There are other FTP server software solutions out there, all better than IIS.

Example: http://mina.apache.org/ftpserver-project/index.html

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.
All FileZilla products fully support IPv6. http://worldipv6launch.org
