When you need to be able to publish files to a web site or other FTP (File Transfer Protocol) based server, you can avoid the cost of buying an FTP program by using the FTP utility built into Windows Explorer. The following is a guide on how to set up Windows Explorer to connect to a remote server for file transfer.
You can now use the folders section to browse to a file on your local drive and then "drag and drop" the file to the appropriate FTP site folder. The file is transferred to the remote server and is immediately available on the Internet.
Caution: This is good for "putting" files to the server, but you may not be able to delete files or otherwise manage a file with the same flexibility as a good FTP program.
