  4. Enter your project ID in the Project ID field.
  5. Optionally enter an login as a hint for Google authentication.
  6. Click on Connect. A browser window will open to allow Google Cloud to check whether you want to allow FileZilla Pro to access your files.
  7. Click on Allow.
  8. Return to FileZilla Pro.
  9. Check the server certificate details displayed – Common name should include – and click on OK.

Your Google Cloud project directories and files will be displayed in the Remote directories section of the main window.

You can now transfer files between your local machine and your Google Cloud account.

Note: In order to avoid re-entering your password, save passwords protected by a master password (see Protect Passwords with a Master Password) and you’ll need to authenticate only once, as it will save the Google Cloud access token for future connections.
