ftp upload


How do I upload files to my ftp server from Micro$oft Internet Explorer? I use win 98 and XP, and wu-ftp on a red hat system.

You should be able to use any sort of FTP client like WS-FTP or even from the command line.

ftp hostname or ip address

And if you set the permissions up right, you can do it from a browser window.

Well make sure you have a permission setting of this:

rwxr-xr-x

This would allow to give the owner full access and all other users just read and execute access. To give those type of permissions, you would type this:

chmod 755 /filename

To change the ownership of that particular directory for a user, then you would use the chown command like this:

chown user /filename

I'm not totally familar with wu-ftpd, if you need any documentation in setting up anything with that, maybe someone else here might know or you can probably check out their site for online doc's, but if you can login and its up and running, those permission settings should get you going.

Sorry, hotrod, did you say you wanted to upload from IE? Are you trying to put files onto your RH server (running wuftp) from a Windows box?

Under 'internet options' you should be able to setup default usernames and passwords and then hopefully drag and droping should work. I doubt it, though. IE is not the best of ftp download clients, so I wouldn't have thought it'd be a particularly good upload one, if at all. I think there's another MS product that'll allow you to upload stuff... be buggared if I can remember what it is though, sorry. There are plenty of Windows ftp clients (for both up and downloads), so IIWY I would take a skooch over to freshmeat or somewhere and download one. I could suggest a very awkward workaround, but it is quite awkward.

Actually from IE, if you have the correct permissions, in your browser if you type this:

ftp://ipaddress or if you have a domain name, you can use that instead of the ip address of your ftp server.

And if you have that user setup, in IE it should prompt for a user name and password if you don't have anonymous login enabled. That's where you would of course use your login and password setup for that machine.

You can check out mine, but I have anonymous login enabled so it won't ask for a username or password, but the permissions are only for download, anonymous users can't upload to it.

ftp://66.68.41.138

You can also specify a user to login like this:

ftp://drew@66.68.41.138 and that should prompt for in this case drew's password.

I stand corrected. I've only ever used IE on the University's network, where they (understandably) have ftp uploading disabled. Oh, and I keep getting connection refused from that IP, Drew.

Hmm.. not sure, works for me.. I'll check my log files. Shouldn't reject anyone, cause I even tested while on vacation not too long ago in 3 different states on 3 different ISP's.

Thymox, I got basically this for an error in my log files which has to be yours: FTP no transfer timeout, disconnected.

Just if your curious that is.

D'oh! Works in Konqueror but not in Galeon. Shame when Galeon is so much better IMO.

Its basically the permissions on the directory and files within it.

Do this: ls -al /file or directory you use

And give us the output of that ? And then tell us what user you want to be owner of it and we should be able to give some detail directions on changing permissions.
