As it turns out I tried the FileZilla site again and tried a different download link, after clicking the Quick Download button.




Oh, any chance you fell for ad that claimed to be the download link? Those are horrid. Unless you know the site, it's easy to click the wrong thing. Why they folks running the page haven't figured it out and made some kind of adjustment, I don't know. It's been going on for years, so I don't think they can claim ignorance.

Not this time, or maybe I did <g> That first button on the FileZilla page is OK, the next page has the problem link, that being the green button. Note that this is still on the FileZilla site. The "Show additional download options" is where the good link is. Lame.



While we're on this, the app works great, cuteFTP is just about identical in look and usage. Question: In cuteFTP I see all of the talk between client and server. FileZilla seems to leave out the details as one connects (but it does all the same stuff, viewing the login with Wireshark). Any way to make it more verbose?

I hardly look at that window. The only time I look is if I have trouble connecting. It seems to be adequate for telling me what's wrong.

You might try the debug options.

It's nothing I care about, was just curious. About that green button link on FileZilla, shoulda read the "bundled offers" bit ;-) Rolling over it does show it's linked to sourceforge.net so I figgered it was OK <shrug> They oughta get rid of it.
