How to use our FTP Site An FTP (File transfer protocol) site is nothing more than a website that has the ability to transfer file information. In order to assure a safe arrival of your file, we need to follow 2 main rules:
1) Only single files (eps, pdf, tiff, sit, sea) can be uploaded to the site. Folders that contain multiple items must be compressed and saved as single self-extracting files. 2) Because our host for this site is IBM, files need to have simple names. No spaces, no numbers. Recommended name: company.filetype. 3) Open your web browser and go to the following URL: ftp://.ftp.thephoenix.com/ads 4) If you are using Fetch yuo do not need a password or username.
5) Go to file menu and select upload file. 6) Select the file and click OK.
How do I E-mail my files Files can be attached to an E-mail and sent to the following address: email@example.com * much like our FTP site, it is best to save all files in a compressed file. This protects the files from damage during transfer. * please make sure to include all support files. * please title E-mail with your company name.
