FTP stands for “file transfer protocol” used to transfer data from one computer to another through a network, such as over the Internet. This is set up through software like Dreamweaver or a special FTP utility such as Core FTP or FileZilla.

Using WinSCP:

Protocol: FTP Encryption: TLS Explicit encryption Hostname: course1.winona.edu or whatever the site FQDN may be Port number: 21 Advanced Button|Connection|Passive mode: should be unchecked
