WSFTP Home & Wsftp Pro are common and widely used FTP Clients by Ipswitch Software.

There are two version of this application - WSFTP Home and WSFTP Pro. While both are similar, their configuration screens differ. We have provided the screen shots for the WSFTP Home edition as an example.




When you finish installing WSFTP Home you will be guided through a setup wizard. Once you have completed the four steps of the wizard you will be able to connect to your web site and upload your files. In the examples below, we have used 'www.mydomain.com.au' as the Host Name, and 'www' as the Remote Directory. The correct details were provided to you in the Domain Security letter when your hosting was first established.

This is the introduction screen of the Wizard - Press NEXT.
The 'Site Name' is simply a label for your configuration - you can put anything here as it is only a label but we recommend you type your domain name for simplicity. Then press NEXT.
The Server Address in some programs is also known as the HOST NAME.
Type your Server Address here eg: 'www.mydomain.com.au'.
On this screen you type the FTP Username and Password for your web site. This information is found in the Domain Seciruty letter. Press NEXT.
On the Connection Type screen, select FTP from the dropdown box, then press NEXT.
You will finally be presented with a FINISH screen, but you are not quite finished yet. There are some advanced options that need setting.
Press the ADVANCED button

On the STARTUP section you will find a place to enter the REMOTE SITE FOLDER information
Please enter 'www' in this location.

You can also set a local folder if you have your web pages in a specific directory on your hard drive.
for example 'c:\mywebfiles'.

Press OK and then FINISH.


When you start WSFTP Home you will automatically connect to your site and you will see a two panel screen as below.



The left side shows files on your computer and the right side shows the files on the Virtual Access web server.


To transfer a file from your computer to the Virtual Access server, click one of the files in the left-hand panel to select it, then press the green button pointing to the right. You will see details of the file transfer take place in the window at the bottom.


To transfer files from the Virtual Access server to your Hard Drive simply do the reverse.
