    I want to e-mail a link that includes files that are on my FTP. How do I do that? Thanks.

    Hi,

    Is your FTP space associated with a webpage, or are the files in it accessible by FTP only?

    Thanks,

    I have the same question. I have ftp and a website available. I need to place files on my site for download. I don't want the files seen on the site, I just need to place them where they can be downloaded/linked to.

    Hi Mike,

    One approach to this is to create a folder on your website, and put the files in that folder. (You can use Fetch to connect the server where your website is located, create a folder, and then upload the files to that folder.)

    Then you can tell people the link to download the file is (the below is an example):

    http://www.nameofmysite.com/NameOfTheFolder/NameOfTheFile

    Even if you don't create a link to it on any of your webpages, you can still create a web address to hand out to people.

    Does that sound like it would do what you want?

    If it does, and you're going to be doing this a lot, after you create the folder on your server, you may want to look into setting up Fetch's WebView feature, which will allow you to copy the web address from Fetch after you upload the files.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks,
