After the file has been successfully saved navigate to that location and open the application installer. You may need to choose ‘Run’ to open the file. Eventually you should find yourself in front of the Filezilla license agreement as shown in Figure 3-2.

The Filezilla application can be looked at like a windows explorer. In the middle left column are the files located on your local machine. When connected to the host computer the files will be displayed in the middle right column. Let’s go ahead and connect to our host computer and transfer our arcade script files from our local computer to the server/host computer.
