How do I transfer files (FTP) using the WS-FTP client   PDF  Print  E-mail 
WS-FTP Setup

WS-FTP is a program that is used to upload and download files to and from your Virtual Server web space. A copy of WS-FTP can be downloaded here:http://www.ipswitch.com/

Once you start WS-FTP you a greeted with a screen that may look complicated, but in fact it is very straight forward and simple once you are familiar with the terms that are used.

Profile Name is the reference name which WS-FTP remembers the profile by, this can be anything that you like.

Host Name / Address is probably the single most important item on this form. Enter your domain name that you have with your account (ftp.mydomain.co.uk). This is so WS-FTP can locate your virtual server on the Internet.

Host Type is the type of server that you are working with. All our servers are UNIX based (Redhat 5.1) so this must be set to UNIX (standard)

Username & Password is the most obvious of details on the form, please note that these details are case sensitive.

Once you have setup WS-FTP and clicked OK WS-FTP will display the directory structure on your virtual server on the right hand side, and your local machine directory structure on the left.


Now you can transfer files to and from your virtual server by dragging files across or tagging files and using the arrow buttons in the FTP window.

Please make sure that when you transfer HTML files that you select the ASCII protocol, and when you transfer Binary/Image files that you use the Binary protocol
