    Forget slow RDP / SAMBA for file transfer -- FileZilla really fast


    Hi folks

    for simple copying from a Remote Nas server TO windows - forget using things like RDP or SAMBA copying with file explorer-- Filezilla client on windows (supports sftp protocol) transfers a zillion times faster --just copied an 80GB Windows Virtual Machine image to a Windows host -- did it in 23 minutes -- OK by me for a full 80GB file. (Ensure on the remote server openssl is installed and service sshd is running and enabled).

    Filezilla client installs fine on Windows and is FREE. Really easy to use too.

    Cheers
