Then just click Connect. FileZilla will remember your login. Then browse away on the right-hand pane. Any downloads will go to the left hand pane.

It's a treasure trove.
Slight correction; set Maximum number of connections to 1 and not 2.

You'll definitely need to setup an account.

You may at the moment be using a anonymous one that has restrictions i.e. only 50k download speed and only 20 anonymous accounts at once.

To setup an account read here:

Filezilla will get updated every so often so will download a new installation file. You just run this and all ok.

Never seen it cluttering my laptop with rubbish. After installation you just delete the update file.

As for uploading on the "Amiga File Server", it's very simple. Once you create an account you have a directory under ~Uploads e.g.

You just upload any stuff to your home directory.
