What is FTP?

FTP or file transfer protocol is a commonly used protocol for exchanging files over the Internet. There are two computers involved in an FTP transfer: a server and a client. The client computer, running FTP client software (Internet Explorer or others - see downloads section), initiates a connection to the server. Once connected, the client can do a number of file manipulation operations such as uploading files to the server or download files from the server.

How do I FTP using Internet Explorer?

Files can be uploaded from your computer to your beckmanXMO space by using an FTP program such as WS-FTP or WISE-FTP.

However you can also use Internet Explorer.
STEP 1: Make sure Internet Explorer is set up properly
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Choose Internet Options from the Tools menu.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Check “Use Passive FTP (for firewall and DSL modem compatibility)
5. Click OK.

STEP 2: Log On to FTP Site
1. Open Microsoft Internet Explorer.
2. In the Address Bar type the FTP address provided by your beckmanXMO sales rep
3. Type in the username and password assigned to you by your beckmanXMO sales rep then click on "Log On".

Now you can simple copy and paste files from your local computer to the files on the FTP site. Once you're finished, just close out of Internet Explorer.
