Creating an Indirect FTP Server Name

An indirect FTP server name combines a Beyond FTP server name with a Standard FTP server name.  This naming convention allows access to ftp servers that cannot be reached directly, but must be routed first to an intermediate Beyond FTP server.  You must first have an address book entry for the intermediate Beyond FTP server.

1.     Launch Beyond FTP or press  if it is running.

2.     Right click the folder where the new ftp address will be stored OR right click World to add the address to the root.

3.     Select New Address Book Entry and press Enter when the edit box appears.

4.     Replace New Server with the name you wish to assign to this entry.  This name must match the name as it is stored at the intermediate Beyond FTP server.  Press Enter.

5.     Click Standard FTP Server.  Then add the name of the intermediate Beyond FTP server to the Server Name.  Separate the two names with a commercial at @ symbol.

6.     Enter something in the server address field.  This can be anything, since the server address stored as part of the base entry will actually be used to make the call.

7.     Enter the credentials for this connection.  It is these credentials, and not those stored at the intermediate Beyond FTP server that will be used to access the ftp server.

8.     Press OK.  Both windows will be updated with the new server name.  You may reorganize the folders and servers in your address book by dragging the entries around.
