WISE-FTP must be activated prior to initial use. To do this, proceed as follows:

IMPORTANT: You must be connected to the Internet to activate WISE-FTP.

Step 1: Configuring the proxy server

The "Welcome" page enables you to configure your Internet connection. You only need to do this if you use a proxy server.

Step 2: Inputting user data

This is where you enter your user data.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to enter a valid e-mail address. You should be able to access e-mails at this address while you are activating the software. Since the activation key that you need to enter at the end of the activation process is sent to the e-mail address you have just entered, you should not use a third-party e-mail address.

Step 3: Request activation

Now click on the Request activation key button. Within a few minutes, an activation key will be sent to the e-mail address you entered.

Enter the key in the "Activation key" field.

IMPORTANT: Always request a new activation key when you reactivate the software. Since the activation key may change at any time, it may be invalid if you need to reactivate the program; e. g., if you install it on a different computer. It is therefore not necessary to save it.

Step 4: Entering the release code

Enter the release code you received when you ordered the software.

Step 5: Program restart

The program subsequently restarts.
