  17. Summary

  18. Self study questions Will a Filezilla client work with any FTP server program or must the server be running the Filezillaserver? Explain your answer. We summarized the Filezilla user interface with a wire-frame diagram. Can you reconstruct it from memory? Would a Web developer typically be transferring files to a server or from a server? When would a Wed developer want to transfer a file from the server to his or her client? Explain why a Web server would also need to run an FTP server?
