FileZilla is an FTP client readily available under GNU General Public License without charge. The file can be downloaded for free from the FileZilla website. The following guide will assume that FileZilla has already been successfully downloaded and installed and will take you through the settings required to connect to the UQ servers but is not intended as a detailed usage guide.

Note: If you are having trouble connecting, please try altering the timeout setting to '0' under Settings.


1. Connecting to the FTP server

  • Open FileZilla

2. Enter either s (for UQ Staff/Student hosting) or s (for UQ website hosting accounts) for the Host, followed by the username and password for the relevant account, and Port 22 as indicated.

3. Click on Quickconnect and you will then make a connection to the server.
