FTP

These instructions will help you configure your Core FTP (version 1.3x) client to access and transfer files with your Mindwatering hosted web site.

1. Start Core FTP
2. If the Site Manager dialog is not already displaying, select "Sites" on the menu bar and choose the "Site Manager" option.
3. The Site Manager dialog will display. In the lower left corner click the "New Site" button.

4. Under the "Site Name" label, update the Site Name field to the name of your Mindwatering hosted web site.
5. Under the "Host / IP / URL" label,, add to this field your domain name (e.g. www.mindwatering.com).
6. Under the "Username" label, add to this field your username (e.g. mw-janedoe).
7. Under the "Password" label, add to this field your account id's password. It will display with astericks (*) and is case sensitive.
8. Choose whether to save the password by deselecting or selecting the "Don't save password."
9. Click the "PASV" checkbox to mark and then unmark the PASV option. (It starts out grayed out, and we clicked twice to turn it on and then off.) You need Passive Transfers turned off. (Some of the port numbers that may be selected are other service ports we block from outside use.)
10. Click the "Advanced" button to the right of the "Host / IP / URL" field you populated in step 5.

11. Select the "Directory/Folder" option within the list of settings box on the left.
12. Under the "Remote Start Folder" label, add to this field "/Sites/". (This keeps you from having to always open this folder manually after a login.)
13. Under the "Local Start Folder" label, add to this field the location for your web sites development folder on your local drive. (e.g. c:/temp/MyDomainWebSite)
14. Click the "OK" button to return to the main Site Manager dialog.
