In the Internet, large files are often transferred using the FTP Protocol. On FTP Server you can access directly in the Browser without having to install a separate Software. We will show you exactly how this works.

In the Browser on the FTP Server without login access

Almost all current browsers have an FTP Client integrated. This can also be accessed via the HTTP-Protocol to content stored.

  • However, you need to adhere to a certain Syntax in the URL, if you want to access a Server:
  • If you need no authentication looks like a URL, for example: "ftp://SERVER_ADRESSE:PORT".
  • Mostly you need to specify a Port, since this is automatically set to the default port of "21".
  • It is sufficient in these cases, if you enter the exact Server address according to the Code, "ftp://" in your address bar.

In the Browser: authentication to FTP Server access

In many FTP servers, you need to login with a user name and password. Both of you must enter it in the address bar:

  • In this case, you first place your user name and then your password before the actual Server address. The two entries separated by a colon. This plug-in, they separate, and then by a "@" from the Server address.
  • A call looks like this: "ftp://USER:PASSWORD@SERVER_ADRESSE:PORT".
  • In the example image you can see how such a URL might look like.
  • After logging in, you can navigate in the directory tree of the Server and download files.
