put filezilla and the corresponding files into a saved crypted folder

Posted 19 May 2019 - 11:57 AM

hello dear experts - good day dear dreamin-code experts and friends

prologue and preliminary words: after musing aprox. one day where to put this question i finally decided to put it to this form here - since i guess that this is the appropiate sub-forum and category.


in general i use Linux - (manjaro) - but some time i use windows.

here the question of the day: i run filezilla also on a notebook that is used sometimes also by my colleagues.
i want to have filezilla in a saved environment - and want to make sure that no body has acceess to the server.

note: it is a win 7 notebook

options i have:

- put filezilla in hidden folder or in a folder that is crypted and that gives access only after password is given. This option can be realized by the encryption methods for folders that is given be Winrar. In other words - with winrar i can set up a folder that has only access for those that know the password.

can do this like so1?

love to hear from you

Doesn't filezilla have an option to require a password to login to what ever server it connects to? Seems that would thwart most folk.

Use windows permissions:
1. Set a password on your windows user account.
2. Create another Standard account for others.
2. Set all filezilla folders to be only readable by your account.

Just put filezilla on a pen drive ?
Apparently windows also has a encryption option: https://askleo.com/h...crypt-a-folder/
Or use veracrypt
Or just password protect your filezilla.. haha

Install Xampp it has an FTP server you can configure (file zilla) and you won't need to play with any windows accounts or permissions, providing the laptop is not directly accessible to your colleagues. You can also add different accounts and restrict certain accounts from accessing remote folders and grant to others. This would be better than setting up root access to share a mater password with everyone.
