I'm looking for a FTP/SFTP client that can store all the session information in a central SQL server, so all employees always have an up-to date list of FTP sites they can connect to. I've been using FileZilla in the past but it's lacking the multi-user capabilities.


One solution could be to use FileZilla with configuration files located on a network share, as shown in this article. Highlights:

  • copy C:\Program Files\FileZilla FTP Client\docs\fzdefaults.xml.example to C:\Program Files\FileZilla FTP Client\
  • edit the new C:\Program Files\FileZilla FTP Client\docs\fzdefaults.xml and point your config to your network location
  • copy all files from C:\Users\username\appdata\Roaming\FileZilla (in Win7) to the network location
  • sitemanager.xml in the network location should contain all your FTP servers

That should get you where you want to be. You can use this cross-platform as well as detailed in the article.
