You most certainly know FileZilla FTP Client, arguably one of the best open-source FTP clients out there for Windows, Linux and Mac: we already mentioned it more than once, for example here. Also, if you’re stumbled upon this post, you’ve probably installed it a number of times: your home computer, your laptop, one of more VMWare machines, a number of remotely-hosted VPS and/or physical servers, and so on. Sometimes you wish you could share your personal sites address book, sometimes you’d just need a way to export/import a small number of entries… And maybe also keep them updated too, since you never know the client you’re going to use when you’ll have to change the IP address, the password, the root folder or other connection settings for one or more nodes.
Luckily enough, FileZilla Client can be easily tweaked into using a truly cloud-based, real-time shareable address book instead of relying to a local one. All you need to do is to choose a cloud-based web file storage service such as Dropbox or Google Drive, where you’ll have to create one or more accounts, and change a couple things in your FileZilla local instance accordingly. Let’s see how it works.
