FTP uploading...


This might sound silly, but:

I've finally got a modem working under Linux (swapped my crappy USB-Winmodem with a serial-hardware modem). My ISP (www.uklinux.net) will only allow my to upload stuff to my webspace if I dial in through them (which I do), but I actually don't know how to upload stuff via ftp under Linux.

I've tried opening my ftp site with Konqueror (ftp://www.thymox.uklinux.net) and dragging & dropping the files over, but it says that I can't write to the directory. Under Mozilla and Nutscrape I just get the 'no access' mouse cursor when dragging & dropping.

Since I've never actually uploaded anything to an ftp site before, how do you do it?

Cheers muchly.

I'm getting old...

Use the command line ftp client.

start ftp with the hostname, and login with your username and password.

Use commands like:

ls - list files
put - put files on ftp servers
get - get files from ftp server
mput , mget - put and get multiple files with wildcards
help - list all commands

easy..

good luck

I think I have it sorted. Apparently their webservers have been down for a while. Just a quick side-question:

I've just set-up a 'personal firewall' using Mandy Control Centre. It basically asks about 5 questions like 'Are you going to be acting as an ftp/mail/web/something server?', all of which I have answered no.

How do I find out which ports it has closed?

Do I need to set-up my computer to temporarily act as an ftp server in order to upload stuff via ftp?

No you can still use ftp without having an ftp server.


To be an ftp client through a firewall you can put it in passive mode.
