Download WS_FTP from here and install it.

When you start up for the first time, you will see the below screen. Click on the "new" button in the upper right to set up a profile for your account.


Set your screen up just like the one below. You may want to cut and paste your username and password to make certain that you are using the correct spelling and naming convention. Check "Save Pwd" only if you would like your password saved in the application for future sessions.


When you are ready to connect to the server, click "OK".

The software will now connect to the server. If you didn't enter your password in the session properties and check "save password", you will be prompted for your password now. If you watch the log panel at the bottom, it will show you connecting and then display your site in the right pane.


The left pane of this interface contains the documents on your computer. The right side of the interface displays the remote host where you will be uploading your files. When you give your username and password, the server automatically takes you to the correct directory to begin uploading your files.
