Now let's go back to the KDE menu on networking. (file transfer(ftp), etc.)

Using FTP

File transfer for example, ftp clients to upload and download files, graphical and non graphical.

  • This ftp client is great, simple and very reliable. In the host field you specify the remote IP address, or a domain name.
  • In the port field it is 21, and by default it is already 21.
  • In the user field, you enter your login name or the active account in the remote server or host.
  • In the password field, enter the login password.
  • After entering the password hit enter to connect

The screen is separated in two parts, left and right. Observe in the middle of the picture, there are two arrows pointing left and right.

The left side is your local directory. The right side is the remote user's account and home directory. Each panel inside contains two arrows. You can scroll through it by clicking up and down.

File transfers: upload or download.

  • Select the appropriate directory or files from the source
  • Select the destination, double click folders to open if necessary
  • Once you are sure of your selection press the arrow key on the center of the two panels to upload or download.

  • If you are uploading, your source will be from left to right
  • If you are downloading, your source is inverted.

By default everything will work without any configuration. You can also use http protocol, local transferring or ssh2.
