Software Update: FileZilla 2.2.17a

The open source ftp client FileZilla has been updated once again. There is little to say about this program, it is a small and easy to use ftp client with support for FTP, SFTP, SSL and GSS connections, among others. This release resolves an issue where the host name could not be translated to an IP address when using SOCKS4A, SOCKS5, or HTTP proxies. The changelog therefore looks like this:

fixed bugs:

  • Don’t resolve hostnames if using SOCKS4A, SOCKS5 or HTTP proxies
