Hi Nathan,

I use it occasionally. Filezilla is an FTP client, i.e. a tool to up/download files to or from an FTP server. It's usually used to upload your finished files when building a website. In order to use it you have to know the login details for your server. Have a look at http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/documentation/
and http://faq.1and1.com/web_space__access/ftp_account/filezilla_guide/1.html

It's actually quite simple, I use it on a dialy basis. You simply need to enter the FTP address, port, username & password.

If you have an address that you going to use often simply click on "File" > "Site Manager" > New Site > Enter a name > under host enter the ftp server address > select the logon type, either Anonymous or normal if you have a username & password, next enter the user/password, then click "Save & Exit"

Now Under "File" you should see a small computer screen, next to that is a small drop down arrow, click, that and you should see the profile you just created, click the profile name and it dould connect. You can noqw drag and drop files onto the FTP server.
