Hello Experts,

Can someone let me know if its possible for Filezilla to be used as a HTTP Server? (I know its main function is as a FTP Client/Server)

Sorry Experts,

I meant to say is it possible to for filezilla to both send and receive on HTTP port 80?

No, Filezilla is an FTP server/client.  You can configure FTP to use port 80, but you can not effectively use HTTP for FTP as they are two completely different protocols.

I agree.  The Filezilla FTP client can not be used as a web server.  Technically, the Filezilla FTP Server can be accessed with a browser if you give it a public ip address.  But it will server files with the 'ftp' protocol and Not 'http' and it won't do any of the other things that web servers do.
