Frequently Asked Questions

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It's a way to transfer a single file or multiple files from the computer you are working on to a computer somewhere else. The process of transferring your files is called an upload. You can download the most popular FTP client CuteFTP from our downloads page.

1. Open Cute FTP. A Site Settings window should open. If you already have CuteFTP open and the Site Settings window is not open, select File then Site Manager.
2. A New Site File will appear at the bottom of the window. Select it.
3. Under Label for site, enter the name that you want to use for your Geoweb FTP sessions. (e.g. Geonet.)

5. Under FTP site User Name, enter your username.
