We explain FTP - technology that makes it possible to send huge files between PCs, upload images to a website, and bypass your email client’s file-size restrictions.
Step 11. If you need to work with several folders, you might find it useful to set up a ‘Home’ directory, which ensures an FTP session starts at the local and remote locations you specify. Also use the ‘Keep directories in sync’ option, which ensures both directories follow each other as you move around.
Step 12. Sometimes you need to visit a particular FTP site only once. To save having to set up a login file for that site in your accounts list, FireFTP offers a ‘Quick Connect’ option. This lets you log in once without it storing the login details. To do this, choose Quick Connect from the box at the top-left.
Step 13. If you want to perform a specific action on a file, you can force it to open in a particular application. Right-click a file and choose ‘Open With’, ‘Add Programs’. Specify the program you want to open a particular file type in. Note that you’ll need to browse to the executable file on your hard drive to set this up.
Step 14. If you have several files, you may need to use FireFTP’s search tool to find what you’re looking for. Select the folder you want to search within, then choose Tools, Search/Filter. Enter your search term in the box at the bottom of the screen; use + to add words, – to exclude words and quotation marks to search for phrases.
