I have DelphiPlus and can't figure out how to set up the WS-FTP.

I am using Windows NT. I am technically an infant, so please, in plain ordinary English, provide more detailed steps than the FAQ did.

Where do I go to find this "set-up screen"????

Have you been to http://www.delphi.com/dir-delphi/faq/ftp.htm

Some versions of WS_FTP look a bit different, but they all require the same information in setting it up. You may have to click on Connect to reach the setup screen you need. Or you may have to start with File/New Site to reach the right point to enter the information.

Yes, I did print and read that FAQ. However, I don't know where to get the setup screen to populate the necessary info.

Where do I find that?

On mine Session Properties pops up when I try to connect, which is where all the settings are.

As I said before, try Connect or File/New Site to set up your ftp.delphi.com connection. Don't be afraid to try things; you can't break anything. If neither of those solve the problem, ask again.

Walt;

I am having difficulting getting into the Current Directory web.
I am using a G-4 mac with IE. I was successful a few days ago and wrote down the URl wher I was able to get in. It was as follows: www.2ftp.com/cgi-web2ftp/work/ftpman.p/illayabrown,
when I do it now it throws me to a 2ftp.com website that has nothing to do with DelphiPlus.
I need to upload some images. Help please, I am a computer novice and have gone to the Delphi FAQ without success.

I'm not really familiar with the web2ftp site. It sounds like you have the address wrong, but I can't help you there. If you post in the DelphiPlus Forum, someone should be able to help you out. That may be easier than learning a new method.

Have you tried the ftp link on your MyForums page? Are you familiar with Fetch for the Mac?

Hi Walt, Since I don't know what I'm doing, I thought you might. I'll probably give you more info than you need since I don't know what is pertinent. I just downloaded a 30 day trial of CuteFTP 4.2,CuteHTML, CuteZIP, and CuteMAP.It's a pkg deal so why not play around? All 4 icon show up on my desk top. When I click on CuteFTP and put in all info it tells me I must be connected to internet first before launching. OK, I connect, go back to desk top, and continue putting in info as close to Forums FAQ as possible, hit connect and get a message from Delphi saying we are hooked up, this is where you go to access files etc. When I go to MY FORUM and try to access my web page I can't get in. Hope this is enough info for you to set my --- straight.

I think you are mixing up functions. FTP is for transferring files, and related functions, such as renaming files, making new folders, deleting files, etc. -- the same sort of functions that you perform with Windows Explorer. You don't view files with FTP; you do that with a browser. You don't move around in Delphi with FTP; you just access your own storage space.

If you upload an index.html file (the usual default web page name) to the web folder/directory in your web space by FTP, then you will view that file with your browser with an address like this:

http://people.delphi.com/gayclore/index.html (or you can omit the index.html part, since it is a default)

Or if you upload a graphic named, for example, mypic.jpg, you would access it with the address:

http://people.delphi.com/gayclore/mypic.jpg

I hope this makes it clearer.
