and how to use it...
Connecting To A Server:
When you start the Cute-FTP application, by default it automatically opens with the "Site Manager" window (as shown below).
Creating a Connection Profile:
It is recommended that you create a connection profile for sites that you connect to on a regular basis. This will provide you with a more efficient method to connect to the server of choice without the need to repeatedly enter connection information.
When You Are Connected:
Cute FTP is designed to be an easy-to-use program for file transfers between systems. It's display is similar to other FTP programs, in that the left side shows files and directories on your system, the right side shows files and directories on the remote system, and the top half shows FTP commands and replies.
To transfer files from your computer to the server, switch to the correct directory on the left, and switch to the desired directory to upload to on the right. NOTE: If you are only transferring text files (web pages, or files ending in: txt, ini, and so on) you should choose ASCII file transfer by selecting the button. Otherwise if you are only transferring binary files (files ending in: gif, jpg, exe, com, zip, dll, and so on) you should choose Binary file transfer by selecting button. Select the file(s) you wish to transfer on the left and the select the button. To transfer files to your computer from the server select the directory on your computer to save the file(s) in and then switch to the directory on the remote system that contains the file(s) that you want to download. Now select the button to start the transfer.
