About File Transfer Protocol

This feature is used to send reports and other files to other computers via the internet. Using File Transfer Protocol (FTP), the program can automatically upload an exported file to a web server. This may be useful for example, to publish reports on your website. The program maintains a list of commonly used FTP servers and directories, as well as the associated password information. These are stored as FTP Profiles, which can be selected by the end user to simplify transmission.

Q & A - File Transfers

Q01.   I connect to the internet via a router/proxy server/firewall. Why am I having problems connecting to my FTP server through ManageMore?
A01.   99.9% of all problems connecting to FTP servers through ManageMore is the result of not having the FTP port, (Port 21) open on the router/proxy server/firewall, or not providing the correct login information. Please check your settings accordingly.

Q02.   I don't see my question here. Where else can I get information?
