FileZilla is a free tool to operate ftp,
I think you are not using it in appropriate manner,
do you want to explain more?

I already have done it thanks

Don't worry.
There is a 'thing' that can always answer you.
You laready have it.
It's called Google.

Use your post as an example (it's as easy as that !!).

This would be a better question: What is a good Windows SSH client ? (I guess you agree with this question )

and you need to read a little bit. (anyway, you have a server now, you are gonad read an awful lot).

The SSH Client program (for Windows) you are looking for, is called Putty, and you can find it here : http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html (Yep, that is the original site of the author).
DO NOT just install - DO read the DOC, FAQ, whatever.

Hello,

first install FTP server, configure en secure it then try to connect.

Other methode, add simple user on your OS Linux/Unix and use SFTP -package with ssh so already installed).

Note : never ever try to connect as root.

Well .....

You should ask this question to the guy that maintains your server
Remember : you are your own host now (KS only gave you some hardware and pre-installs some software for you), so any capability your server shoukld offer to you, should be installed / activated first.

The short answer is : FIRST setup your FTP server on your KS server - its your job, you are the admin..
(and when doing so, you would know the login settings for a FTP client like Filezilla)
Then : use Filezilla t connect to your server.


Btw : you have already the 'server' part of your question, its ksxxx.dd.fff.net or the IP of your server.
