Set the login type to Normal, and remember to enter your username and password as issued by Biblio for FTP. Click Save and Exit when finished. You will only need to do this portion once, and it will automatically remember your settings the next time you upload.

  1. Note: For the following three steps, please refer to the image at the bottom of this page. When you are back to the main screen, click on File, then Connect to the Default Site. You'll see connection information scroll by in the top window (labeled A below). When it says Status: Connected, you are ready to transfer your files.
  2. Using the file browser in panel B, locate the folder which contains the file you wish to upload.
  3. Once you have located the file, click to highlight it. Then locate the file you want to upload from panel C. Simply drag and drop it into panel D. You'll see information informing you that the file is being transferred in the bottom panel (E). When it finishes transferring, your file is uploaded to Biblio, and you may exit FileZilla!
