					Using FileZilla to Upload/Download from www.Mintec.com
The following instructions will show screens using FileZilla’s ftp client. You can use any ftp
client application such as SmartFTP, CuteFTP, etc.
General settings for any ftp client:


       Hostname: ftp.mintec.com
       Protocol:    ssl explicit port number 21
                    ssl implicit port number 990
       Username & Password: use the same credentials you use for Mintec’s website



If you would like to use the FileZilla ftp client, you can download the latest version at:
http://filezilla-project.org/

On most ftp client applications you will have the option to enter settings and save settings for a
“connection” (also called a “remote connection”, “remote host connection”, and the like). After
installing and opening the ftp client, you should set up a “connection”.
The following pages illustrate how to do this in FileZilla.




                                  Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
When you open FileZilla the screen should look something like this:




                               Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
Choose “File” and then “Site Manager” from the menu at the top of the window.




                              Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
The following window will pop up:




                             Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
Click on the button “New Site”




                                 Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
This screen appears:




                       Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
Type in a name for the connection




                              Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
Remember the settings at the beginning of this document:


       Hostname: ftp.minesight.com
       Protocol:    ssl explicit  port number 21
                    ssl implicit  port number 990
       Username & Password: use the same credentials you use for Mintec’s website




Fill out the host information with these settings (the screenshot uses the “ssl explicit):




                                 Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
If you would like to save the user name and password, select “normal” for the “Logontype”




                              Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
Enter your username and password and click on the “OK” button




                             Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
This will return you to the main FileZilla screen. Click on the down arrow by the “Site
Manager” icon. You will see the connection you just added.




                               Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
Click on the connection. This will start the connection process to Mintec’s ftp site.




                                Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
You may see a certificate warning window come up.
(As you can see by the details the certificate belongs to Mintec.)
       a) Click on the box in the lower left-hand side of the warning window so that this
          warning will not appear again
       b) Click on the OK button




                               Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
The connection process completes successfully. The default location once you connect is
your “home” directory on the ftp site. In this example, the “home” directory is TestClient.




                               Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
To see all of the directories that are available click on the “-” at the top of the directory
structure




                                 Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
Clicking on any “+” or “-“ located at the side of a folder opens or closes the folders and lists
the files below it.




                                 Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
To Upload a file(s):




Highlight the file you want to upload.




                                Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
With your mouse, drag the file from the left-hand window (local) and drop to the directory
on the right-hand side window.
The copy process will begin and you will see the new file(s) appear in the folder on the
remote site.




                               Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
To download a file:




                      Mintec, Inc. | January 1, 2010
The file(s) will start to copy. The time it takes to complete depends on how large the file
size(s) is.

To disconnect from the ftp site you can just close your ftp application.
