I use Filezilla for FTP uploads etc. Keeping accounts in sync across machines has been a hassle until now.
I suspected there would be a way using Dropbox - and it turns out there are three:
1) Use a portable version of Filezilla installed in say \Dropbox\software\
available from Prortable Apps:
2) Reconfigure Filezilla to look for it's config files in your dropbox rather than the programs installation folder. Details here:
3)For Win 7 and newer, Mac OS or Linux use Hardlinks or Symbolic links.
it involves moving the confiv file and making a symbolic link using the mklink command or equivalent:
mklink “C:\Users\peter\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\sitemanager.xml” “C:\Users\peter\My Dropbox\Settings\sitemanager.xml”

I'm still on XP on most machines so I took approach 2.
