|In order to use an account at KeenSpace, you need to know how to FTP. FTP stands for
file transfer protocol, but I will use the term as a verb, as well as a noun. In short, it's
how you get files uploaded to your site.|
If you are on a Windows system, there's a great chance you've got two ftp methods built in.
One method is in many versions of Internet Explorer (but not all), with drag-and-drop file movement, which is intuitive to most users. You can't control things like whether a file is ascii or binary - it interprets that. However, it will do everything a basic keen site requires, and it's pretty easy to use.
The other, which is not quite as easy to use, but is more universal, is command line ftp. I've never seen a Windows-32 system that didn't have it (although they probably exist).
If you want to use Internet Explorer's ftp, keep reading.
If you want to use the command line ftp, go to this page.
|First, go to your ftp page. It's the same as your regular page, but with ftp, like
ftp://MYCOMIC.keenspace.com. You get a blank page. Now go to your file menu, and the first option should be 'Login As...'.
NOTE 1: If you don't get the 'Login As...' option on your file menu, your version of IE doesn't have ftp built in. Go to Gear, a help site on KeenSpace, to find other versions of ftp.
NOTE 2: If ftp://MYCOMIC.keenspace.com doesn't respond, go to ftp://ftp.keenspace.com, and that works just the same.
|Your ftp password is the same as your site password. Case-sensitive, as always.|
