FTP Connection Wizard
If you are not familiar with FTP, the FTP Connection Wizard helps you to
connect to an FTP server with necessary information.
Step 1: What do you name it?
Here you are asked to provide a name that helps you remember the site you
are connecting to. This site profile will be saved to the FTP Address Book
with an entry title of the given name. You can also enter memo or description
of this site in the Description field.
Step 2: Site Address
You are asked to provide the address of the FTP server. This address is
the unique identification of the FTP server. This should be a valid URL
of an FTP server. An example of a valid FTP URL is ftp.turboftp.com. It
can also be an IP address, which looks like [126.96.36.199] (between the
brackets). If this is a secure FTP server, choose the correct Secure
Step 3: Login Info
Every FTP server requires you have a user account to log into it. An account
is usually represented with a UserID and the associated password. Many FTP
servers can be accessed with the "anonymous" account, and the
password is usually the visitor's email address. Select the Anonymous
check box if you don't have any other account. If the server supports S/Key
Password Encryption, you may select the S/Key type to use in the dropdown
Step 4: Initial Local Directory
Here you can specify the local directory to appear in the Local Browser
Pane. You can download/upload files by drag and drop operation between the
Local browser Pane and the Remote Browser Pane. Click the button on the
right hand side to find local path.
Step 5: Add to Address Book
Select folder in Site Address
Book to save the new site profile.
Step 6: Congratulations
Finish. Press the connect button to go to the FTP site now!
