Access to Andrew Rich's FTP server
You will required to FTP ( File Transfer Protocol ) a file(s) up to the server.
Once uploaded, the file will be available at the URL
Please use the following commands
01. Create a folder and place your file in that folder for example c:\for_andrew and copy your file into this directory
02. Open a DOS window - Start, Run "cmd"
03. At the DOS prompt, change into your newly made folder "cd \for_andrew"
04. This should place you in the directory containing your file.
05. Next start the ftp session by typing "ftp ftp.tech-software.net"
06. You will be asked to put in a username which is "firstname.lastname@example.org"
07. And password is "password1234"
08. You will be then presented with a prompt
09. You can use pwd ( present working directory ) or dir ( dircetory listing ) to see what is on the server.
10. Best to select "bin" for the transfer method ( as opposed to ASCII )

12. If you have one file, you can use "put" if you have many files you can use "mput"
13. Use a dir to confirm your file
