FTP Instructions


Although you can use any FTP client to upload files to your site, we at OCSNet prefer WS_FTP from IpSwitch. Follow the instructions for your FTP client of choice. Make sure that one of the files you upload is called index.html; this file will be the default page sent when a visitor doesn't specify which file they want from your site. Only files in the /MyWebsite directory will be visible to visitors of your site, although visitors do not need to include the MyWebsite in the URL.

FTP Server: vip2.ocsnet.net
Username: You selected this when you created your personal web site site in the OACYS User Administration site.
Password: You selected this when you created your site in the OACYS User Administration site.
Upload directory: /MyWebsite
URL: http://www.vip2.ocsnet.net/~username/

Many WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web page editors include a means to upload files to a personal web site. Make sure you select FTP Publish when using these editors - the OACYS server does not support FrontPage™ extensions or WebDav publishing at this time.
