How to FTP things to BioComp

Sometimes you need to send us files that cannot be emailed.  We have an FTP server you can use from Windows Explorer in Windows.  It's easy!  Follow these steps:

  1. Open a Windows Explorer window; press Win+E.
    You can use either Windows Explorer or Internet Explorer. Because FTP involves working with files, Windows Explorer may make the most sense.
  2. Click to select the Address bar.
  3. If the Address bar isn’t visible in Windows XP, choose View→Address Bar.
  4. Type the FTP site’s address: Type into the address bar
  5. Press Enter.
  6. The FTP server is password-protected.  A dialog box will appear and enter the User and Password we have supplied you.
    In a second, you see the window populated with folders and files, just as though you were looking at storage on your own PC. Keep in mind, however, that you’re using a remote computer on the Internet.
  7. Drag your file to this ftp folder or copy your file locally by selecting it and typing Ctrl-C and go the ftp window and type Ctrl-V.
  8. The transfer may take a while, you are sending over the internet. 
  9. When it is done, merely close Windows Explorer to disconnect.
That's it!
