Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Understanding FTP.
- I've put together this course with beginners in mind. I expect that you're familiar with using your operating system of your choice for things like moving files around, browsing the web and installing software. While FTP is often used for other purposes, I decided to build this course around the idea of working with files on a web host since that's a very common reason for having to learn to use FTP software. But the procedure is the same for accessing other kinds of files.
