Connect to FTP site

To connect to an FTP site, click the Connect button. The Site Manager dialog box will open, where you can enter a user name and password to log onto an FTP site.

For servers that allow anonymous login, use anonymous as your user name and your e-mail address as your password.

To log onto private sites that support operations such as file upload, you need a predefined ID/password combination and sometimes a special account number. Such sites are normally used to share corporate information with other users or to manage websites. Contact your web space provider for the necessary login information.

Before connecting, create a new server profile.

To use an existing connection click Connect.

After having created an FTP site, you can now connect to a server. To do so, proceed as follows:

  1. Click the Connect button, or select Connect from the File menu.

  2. In the Site Manager dialog box that opens, select an existing server or create a new FTP site.

  3. Then click Connect to establish the connection to the selected server.

  4. Details about your connection will appear in the FTP Log window.
