Run the Directory Definition Wizard

The Directory Definition Wizard helps you to define the directory format for an unrecognized type of FTP server. The Wizard allows you to identify the filename and other fields in the directory output from the current FTP site so that server directory listings can be displayed and interpreted properly in the right pane of the FTP Client window.

Note: This wizard should not be used if the files on the FTP site already display properly.

To use the Directory Definition Wizard

Note: To use the Directory Definition Wizard, you must have Server type set to Auto detect (the default value) on the General tab of the Site Properties dialog box.

  1. Connect to a site.
  2. From the Tools menu, choose Directory Definition Wizard.
  3. Complete the steps as directed by the wizard.

    Note: File name is the only required field. You can leave the other fields undefined.

  4. When you are done specifying the location of fields, click Finish.

    The FTP Client automatically refreshes the server directory listing.

  5. If the directory listing is still unusable, re-run the Directory Definition Wizard and continue experimenting with the location of directory fields until you get better results.
