    Remote file edit in Filezilla


    Hi there

    Just a hint for people using filezilla -- easy way to edit remote files when remote system only has console type text editors (vi/vim etc)

    If you have a remote server with non GUI - you can still edit files on it via filezilla say from a laptop using a full screen text editor -- saves messing around with VI / VIM or some of those awful console text editors

    simply from filezilla at the remote file list right mouse click against the file you want to edit :

    ensure if editing system type config files etc that you enable ssh on the remote server you allow root / admin access)

    Here I want to edit the remote SAMBA file (/etc/smb.conf) on a Centos 8 server running headless and no GUI installed.

    A better FTP client than FileZilla?

    Hello all,

    I do a ton of work maintaining dedicated game servers for a gaming community, which I must use an FTP client daily for to pull logs, install new plugins and maps, etc. I've been using FileZilla for nearly a year, but I'm finding that I have a lot of issues with it. I keep a lot of the files that I work with in my Downloads folder, and when I scroll through it to get a file, FileZilla completely locks up while looking for the stupid thumbnails for the files in that folder. Also, it never saves my preferences for overwriting files when I upload a queue of them to the servers (it always loses them when the program is exited).

    So, is anyone that uses FTP using something better (preferably free)? I just need something that's easy to use, holds a list of servers and their credentials to connect to, has a decent interface with adequate file/folder tree panes for the local and remote computers, and an easy way to view and edit both local and remote files. Any ideas?

    The OS I use is Windows 7 x64.

    Remote File transfer ?

    Setup an FTP server, Filezilla's server is free and easy to configure. Use the Filezilla client to transfer the files(or any other FTP client you prefer).
