I have had to pull out of a conference inwashington, as my wife is ill. A colleague is going to give my presentation at the conference, but I need to get about 60-70Mb of Powerpoint presentation and word files to her. Someone has kindly allowed us to use a ftp site in her work, butI cannot work out how to do it. I can access the ftp page, but cut and pasting doesn't work, and using Poerdesk Pro ftp utility and entering password etc doesn't work either.
any suggestions as to how I can use this ftp would be very gratefully received. If there is a moron's guide to fTP on the web somewhere it would be great if you could tell me where. thank you
Try a different FTP program like ws_ftp which is quite good. You have two windows: the local disk and the remote disk. Drag from one to the other and they should go ok. You will need a broadband connection for that volume of files though.
thanks. things are moving forward. The only problem now is I am being asked for a host name, but haven't been given one. I have the ftp address. Is there a way of working out the hostname? the folks at the other end (in toronto) are all off snowboarding today, so I can't ask them! thanks
