  1. I love filezilla man. Best free ftp client available and may be the best ftp client period. IMO

  2. Itallianbird,

    There are two ways of installing Filezilla in Ubuntu.

    1. From the terminal:
    #sudo apt-get install filezilla

    2. From the GUI using Synaptic Package Manager
    From the Menu – System – Administration – Synaptic Package Manager.
    Search for `Filezilla` and right-click to `Mark for Installation.`

    If you are new to Ubuntu, use the GUI.

    Hope that helps!

    1. If Trojans are stealing your passwords, you have greater issues than Filezilla. I find the security features of this program scalable and reliable, provided they are on a properly secured computer to begin with. Don’t mistake OS specific vulnerabilities with flaws in this software.
