MacBook Pro M1

#1 Post by pminx » 2021-01-06 17:09

I have a new MacBook Pro M1 with Big Sur v11.1. I got Filezilla to work fine on my PC and my old MacBook Pro, but the MacBook M1 gives the Error: fzsftp could not be started Error: Could not connect to server. I was wondering if anyone else has had issues with the latest M1 chip? Thanks.

M1 chip is an entirely different architecture (ARM-based). There is no native FileZilla for ARM, and there possibly never will be.

Of course, there's Rosetta 2, looks like there are still some problems and incompatibilities. If they can be resolved needs to be determined by the dev, but probably, Apple needs to take action. Should they at one point decide to remove the Rosetta emulator completely (as they've done before with Rosetta 1), FileZilla on Mac would vanish.

Make sure to update to the most recent version of FileZilla.

A native build for ARM-based Macintosh PCs will come soon after such devices are available in stores that accept SEPA payments.

I'm running FileZilla without issue on macOS 11.1 on a Mac mini m1.

Try connecting to an SFTP server. Does it work?

I had this issue on my mac mini M1 (specifically with sftp not ftp), but I closed down Filezilla, then opened it again and it connected this time.

Hi All, I have a Mac Mini with M1 running 11.2 and FileZilla Pro 3.52.2. I can connect just fine, but there are a few files that consistently fail to upload. My experience with this, thus far, is limited to Wordpress uploads. The files that fail consistently are:

public_html/wp-admin/admin.php
public_html/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/hr/plugin.js

On the same network, I can, with no issues, upload the entire WP file set using my 2009 Mac Pro running 10.14.6
