To publish information on the FTP server requires three steps:
- Logging in
- Storing data
- Granting access
People who want to publish data on the FTP-server need to login to their requested FTP server account, using secure FTP. Use SSH Secure File Transfer (pre-installed on Windows PCs), or use the sftp command on Linux PCs. There is no possibility of mapping a Windows network drive (unlike the webserver).
