Access to Andrew Rich's FTP server


You will required to FTP ( File Transfer Protocol ) a file(s) up to the server.


Once uploaded, the file will be available at the URL


http://www.tech-software.net/temp


Please use the following commands


01. Create a folder and place your file in that folder for example c:\for_andrew and copy your file into this directory

02. Open a DOS window - Start, Run "cmd"

03. At the DOS prompt, change into your newly made folder "cd \for_andrew"

04. This should place you in the directory containing your file.

05. Next start the ftp session by typing "ftp ftp.tech-software.net"

06. You will be asked to put in a username which is "temp@tech-software.net"

07. And password is "password1234"

08. You will be then presented with a prompt

09. You can use pwd ( present working directory ) or dir ( dircetory listing ) to see what is on the server.

10. Best to select "bin" for the transfer method ( as opposed to ASCII )

11. prompt off ( stops the system from asking you each time you want to transfer a file )

12. If you have one file, you can use "put" if you have many files you can use "mput"
