FTP

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. A protocol is a language that enables computers to speak to one another. FTP is used to make files and folders publicly available for transfer over the Internet. In some cases you may need to get permission from the network computer's administrator to log on and gain access to files on the computer. But often you'll find that you can use FTP to gain access to certain networks or servers without having an account, or being an official password holder, with that computer. These "anonymous" FTP servers can contain a broad range of data that is publicly available through FTP.

The Internet address (URL) for an FTP server looks slightly different from the URL you use for a typical Web page. For example, Microsoft has an "anonymous" FTP server at ftp://ftp.microsoft.com, where you can download files ranging from product fixes, updated drivers, and utilities, to Microsoft Knowledge Base articles and other documentation.

How much access you have to files and folders on FTP servers depends on what kind of permissions you have with the FTP server.

  1. To access our FTP site
  2. In the Address bar, type the Internet address (URL) for the FTP site you want to connect to. For example: ftp://24.142.223.51
  3. To download a file or folder, right-click the item on the page, and then click Copy to folder.
  4. To log on as a different user to this FTP site, click the File menu, and then click Login As.
  5. To rename or delete items in an FTP folder, or paste items into an FTP site (upload), you can use the same commands and actions you use with Windows Explorer or My Computer.

 

  • On some FTP sites, you can only view or download files. Only the people who run or own the site can rename, delete, or upload files.
  • On many FTP sites, you are automatically logged on anonymously, so you can view or download files. To upload, rename, or delete files, you may need to log on using a special username and password. Also, different areas of the same site may require different logons.
  • You cannot move files within or between FTP sites. You can move files from an FTP site to a temporary location on your computer or a network drive and then upload them to another FTP site or different folder on the same site.
