What is Anonymous FTP?

FTP is file transfer protocol.  Anonymous FTP allows users to download file by use of FTP software (called a client).  The process is simple. 


What are acceptable file names?

File names are case-sensitive (uppercase and lower case letters are different letters) and should not contain spaces or non-alphanumeric characters.  The underscore ( _ ) and hyphen ( - ) are OK to use.  You should avoid any other special characters.  We recommend that you use only lowercase names for your files and directories, to avoid confusion over case issues.


What can I use Anonymous FTP for?

Use Anonymous FTP to received download files from this website.  Use Anonymous FTP to upload files to the Incoming directory.  The Anonymous FTP allows sharing files with visitors and to receive incoming fiels from visitors.  Visitors will only be able to see the contents of the Anonymous folder and not the contents of the Incoming folder.


Can I view other uploaded files from others?

You can only upload files into the Incoming directory using Anonymous FTP.  You cannot view the contents of the Incoming directory.  You cannot transfer any files to any other directory on the website and no other directories are accessible.


I don’t have a FTP, where can I get one?

You can use Netscape® Communicator® Composer, Microsoft® FrontPage®, Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard, or an FTP client such as WS_FTP for Windows or FETCH (Mac® OS). 


WS_FTP has a good help file for getting started with FTP


If all else fails and you can’t make the FTP download work, then Email a request for attaching a file to a regular email.
