Disable FileZilla server interface from popping up on server logon

Submitted by Jochus on Thu, 01/05/2014 - 07:22 | Posted in: Windows

When I logon to a server which is running a FileZilla server (as a service), I always get a popup which connects to the FileZilla server. It's a bit annoying as you can only disable this popup while installing the server. There's no GUI configuration to disable it after post install.

Luckily, there's a small fix in the windows registry which disables the popup, but still keeps the FileZilla server service running in the background:

  • Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\
  • Remove FileZilla Server Interface entry
