    I am using the 15 day trial and am new to using an ftp. I've accomplished uploading files and having a client download, however, what needs to take place for a client to upload a file back to me without giving them by personal sign in info, etc.

    Thanks for your help and patience!

    Providing a place where clients can upload files for you without needing your sign-in information is not something Fetch can help you with directly.

    The best solution is to get a web hosting acount where you can set up anonymous ftp and a write-only drop-box folder. Anonymous ftp allows users to connect to a server without a username or password, and a write-only drop-box folder is like a postal mailbox - users can put files into it, but they cannot see what else is in there or get them out. But as the owner of the account, you can get into the dropbox and take the files out (using Fetch).

    If your Internet provider does not offer such a service, is one provider that does, and there are probably others.

    Thanks for trying out Fetch!
