How do I connect FileZilla to Linode?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 1:00 pm

FileZilla is a free and open source FTP, SFTP and FTPS client for Windows. It supports the following protocols: FTP, FTPS, SFTP, and FTPS over SSL.

To connect to a Linode server using FileZilla, first install the software. Then, open FileZilla and navigate to the Linode server’s hostname or IP address.

Enter the user name and password for the Linode account you want to connect to.

If you are using FileZilla 4.x or earlier, you will need to add the Linode server as a remote server. To do this, click the “Add a remote server” button and enter the following information:

Server name: Linode

Server address:

User name: root

Password: password

You can then connect to the Linode server using the “Connect to server” button.

PRO TIP: When connecting FileZilla to Linode, be sure to use the correct server type, FTP protocol, and port number. Incorrect settings may prevent you from connecting or cause errors.

If you are using FileZilla 5.x or later, you can connect to the Linode server using the “Connect” button on the main window.

This button will open the “Connect to server” dialog box, which you can use to enter the same information as described in the previous step.
