FileZilla FTP Software

As previously stated in the August IR update, we have done away with the old FTP software, WS_FTP, and replaced it with the new FileZilla FileZilla has been deployed to all computers on our domain except for the computer labs. Those users wishing to install the software can do so by following the instructions below.

Install Instructions:
*Click on Start, then Control Panel.
*Click on Add/Remove Programs, and then Add New Programs.
*Under the Add programs from your network list, click on FileZilla and then the Add button.
*The program will then be listed under Start > All Programs > SHSU Programs > Utility(s).

FileZilla is very similar to the older WS_FTP program, so usage of the new program should not be too different. If you have any trouble using the new FileZilla software please follow the guides we have created on our Technology Tutorials page:

If you have any trouble with installation or use of the program please call the Helpdesk at 936-294-1950.
