Note: If you did not click OK at the end of the previous part of this section you can skip steps 1 and 2.
1. On the FileZilla server window click Edit
2. Click Settings
Screen 3.01 will appear.
2. Click on IP Filter under General Settings(left side of Screen 3.01)
Your screen should change to look like Screen 3.04
Optional Step - Blocking and Allowing IP addresses(Recommended)
Screen 3.04 shows where you would block and allow IP addresses from connecting to the server.
Blocking IP address(es) and IP address rangesExample of a LAN only FileZilla FTP Server IP filtering configuration:
OS.1: To block an IP address put it in the text box labeled "The following IP addresses are not allowed to connect to the server"(Screen 3.04)
Note: To block multiple IP addresses input them separated by spaces.
Blocking all connections(Recommended)
The downside to blocking all connections is that you must know every IP address that you want to allow to connect to the server. However, if all the IP addresses you wish to allow are static or within a range it is a good way to prevent annoyances from trying to connect to your server and do malicious things.
OS.1: To block all connections put a single asterisk(*) in the text box labeled "The following IP addresses are not allowed to connect to the server"(Screen 3.04)
OS.2: Input the IP address(es) that you wish to allow into the text box labeled "Exclude the following IPs from the list of disallowed IPs, thus allow access again"(Screen 3.04) How to find an IP address
Note: IP addresses placed into the exclusion list will be allowed to connect to the server. (This is the most secure type of IP filtering setup)
Note: To allow multiple IP addresses input them separated by spaces.
