- 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".
