Set Default Home Directories

Use default home directories to determine which files you see by default in the FTP Client. The default server directory determines which files you see in the server pane when you first connect to a site. The default local folder determines which files you see in the local pane when you launch the client.

To set the default server directory

  1. Use the right pane to browse for the server directory you want to set as the default.
  2. Open the Site Properties dialog box and click the Directories tab.
  3. Under Server, click Use Current. This enters the current server location in the Home directory text box.
  4. Click OK.

Tip: To change the default server home directory, you can also right-click the folder you want to use. On the shortcut menu, click Set Home Directory.

To set the default local folder

  1. Open the Site Properties dialog box and click the Directories tab.
  2. Under Local, click Browse and select the PC directory you want to set as the default.
  3. Click OK.
