View Full Version : Internet uploading help needed.

07-13-2006, 03:28 AM
Hello. At another forum I posted a bunch of images. I ran out of bandwidth. To make a long story short, after some asking a guy said he could donate 100mb of his own web space to me.
This is what he wrote:

Here, I made 100 mb of upload space for you at my site:


The FTP account ************************************ with password *********** was added. And a quota of 100 megs.

I will keep an eye on the bandwidth to make sure you aren't costing me extra money.

You can upload pictures and HTML. The server will run PHP, but please stick to vanilla HTML, since PHP may allow attackers to deface the site (or worse, use it to spam people from).

I assert no rights on any images you upload there. You retain copyright and all other rights. I am just providing a web accessible place for you to store them.

So my question is simple. How do I upload to this page!?!

I have the PW and the login for the FTP account, but I don't understand at all how I should upload to this page!?!

Use a ftpclient favorable a free one .


ftp://ftp.yorku.ca/.snapshot/hourly.1/pub/york_other/te...t/win95/ws_ftp32.zip (ftp://ftp.yorku.ca/.snapshot/hourly.1/pub/york_other/teachtec/pc/internet/win95/ws_ftp32.zip)

Setup server ip port and login password etc and there you go .)

Can you specify these steps a bit more detailed please?

Back in the olden days you had to login with a name and password to use just about anything. If you're using Windows, you don't even need any additional software, but the basic ftp text interface isn't convenient to use. Open a DOS box and type this:


ftp>open yourftpaddress.com

name: xxxx
password: xxxx

Thank you for logging on Mr. XXX!

And you navigate the directories just as you'd navigate normal local directories. Set binary transfer mode and upload files with:

send xxxx

then type:

ls -al

...to see the results. But yes, an FTP client would be better. The drawback of these newfangled graphical interface operating systems is that people never learn how to do things the 'real' way.

I hope that sums it up .

Then you can connect and see left side your directories and right side server side directories. Maybe create a subfolder there that you know what is yours and dont interfere with the rest of the files.
