Inetrnet Explorer

You can use internet exploer 5.5 or 6 for ftp, example would be ftp:\\ftp.yourdomainname.xxx in the address bar. However we do not recomend it as it is not a reliable ftp program. We suggest you use an ftp client such as WS_ftp, cute, Flash FXP, ect... If you need such a client you can go to www.download.com and download it from there.


Connect your computer to the Internet.

When WS_FTP LE first launches, it opens the Session Properties window. Here is where you select which FTP site you want to connect to for this 'session'.

From this Session Properties window, click on the New button.

All fields should go blank. Now you can create a new FTP site 'Profile'. The following information is what you'll need to connect to an FTP site:

  • Profile Name = THE FTP SITE NAME
  • Host Name/Address = THE FTP ADDRESS
  • Password = YOUR PASSWORD

Enter these values into the 'Session Properties'. Be sure to check 'Save Password' so that you don't have to re-enter it every time you go to connect. Now click the Apply button. Congratulations, you have successfully created an 'FTP Profile' in WS_FTP LE!

Now Click on the OK button and WS_FTP will connect you to your site. If you have speakers on your computer, you'll hear a sound when you've successfully connected.

Your screen should now look like this:

The left-hand side is a view of the files on your 'Local System' (your computer). The right-hand side is a view of the files on the 'Remote System' (Internet site). To transfer files between the left and right side, highlight a file and click on one of the two arrows located in between the panes

Note: The default view of your Local System (left pane) is 'C:\Program Files\WS_FTP'. You can move up to 'C:\Program Files' by double-clicking the green up-arrow. To move up to to 'C:\', double-click the up arrow again. To change to another drive letter, scroll down and double-click on any available drive.
