Getting there

Use this tab to provide connection information for the specified site. The options are:

FTP address

Type the FTP or SFTP server to log on to. This can be a domain name, a URL, or an IP address.

Server type

In most cases, FTP Client will correctly identify your server when this value is set to Auto detect. If FTP Clientis not successfully identifying the type of server you are connecting to, select it from this list.

Auto detect is not available for SFTP sessions. The default for these sessions is UNIX.

If you log on to this server anonymously, the Password box is automatically filled in with the anonymous password specified on the General tab in the Options dialog box. If this FTP site expects a different password for anonymous users, type the site-specific password here.
