How to establish a FTP connection using Dreamweaver MX
The post below originally appeared on 1and1 US blog and was written by Micah Magruder.
The main method that our shared hosting customers use to connect to their web space is File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
Using a FTP client, you can connect to your 1&1 web space remotely to upload and download files.
You can use Adobe Dreamweaver MX, a website building software, to establish an FTP connection.
Before you get started, make sure you have the following:
* FTP address: This is the domain name with no http://www or ftp://. For example, justonedomain.com
* FTP username: Can be found in your Control Panel under FTP Account.
* FTP password: Can be found in your Control Panel under FTP Account.
If you already have this information, continue on through the following steps.
2. Under Manage Sites click New and select FTP & RDS Server.
