Configure FTP

A very handy feature of UltraEdit is its ability to save/open files via FTP. If you haven't taken the time to explore this feature, take a few minutes to see what you are missing!

The following steps will walk you through creating a FTP account.


FTP Account


Step 1: Create New Account

In the FTP dialog (File Menu > FTP > Open from FTP or Save As to FTP) you will need to click on the Accounts button. Click on the "Add Account" button and you will be prompted for to enter the account name.

You may type any name you choose. This name will define the account as shown below.


Step 2: The Server or IP Address

This is the ftp site that you wish to connect to such as ftp://ftp.ultraedit.com. This may also be entered as ftp.ultraedit.com. If preferred the IP Address in the form xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx may be entered.

For the example below I am using ultraedit.com.


Step 3: Name or Username/Password

This is the username used to log into the server. The default username is anonymous as this is typically used for an anonymous login to FTP.

This is the password used with the username to log into the server. The default password is @. This should be the password for the username as provided by the site administration, or for anonymous log in this is typically the e-mail address of the user.


Step 4: Save Password

This checkbox determines if UltraEdit will save the password for later reference. If not, the user will be prompted for the password as required. Note: if the password is saved it is stored on the system. It is encrypted however, the encryption mechanism is unsophisticated and should not be relied upon as a method of security.


Step 5: User Account

This allows the user to specify an account on the host server when logging. This is only required with some servers.


Step 6: Secure FTP (SFTP - SSH2)

This instructs UltraEdit to only connect with SECURE FTP (SFTP) with the SSH2 protocol. All transfers are encrypted and the encryption algorithm is negotiated with the server. If this is set the transfer dialogs will show a "lock" symbol indicating the transfer is secure.


Step 7: Initial Directory

This is the initial directory to connect to on the FTP server. This is not required. If this is NOT specified, UltraEdit will remember the last directory for the account each time the user connects to the server.


Step 8: FTP/Proxy Port

This is the port used by UltraEdit for FTP protocol. The default is 21. This may be changed if required. If using the proxy it is the port used to connect to the proxy for FTP protocol.


Step 9: Proxy/Firewall Settings

If connecting directly to the Internet the proxy settings should not be enabled. If connecting via a proxy on a LAN it will be necessary to set up the proxy settings.

Use Proxy
This enables the proxy settings and configures this account to connect through the specified proxy.

Proxy Server
This is the name of the server (or IP address) that is used for the proxy. If you do not know this name check with your system administrator.

Proxy Port
This is the port that is used for the proxy. If you do not know this, check with your system administrator.
