don't waste your time with that download; the binaries in the bin folder don't work on fedora 18
install from the fedora repository instead

yum install filezilla

Thanks for your help, just to know, what kind of installers are valid in Fedora?
Seth SimmonsSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
Fedora is a technology of Red Hat and uses the same type of installer, RPM packages.  Other distributions like CentOS (also based on RH technologies) use it also.


Some vendors and other places (like sourceforge) will provide source code that you can compile yourself to create the binaries.  Seems that filezilla source requires a lot of dependencies and it's just easier to install from the fedora repository.
