FTP is short for "file transfer protocol". Basically, it is a way of moving files from one place to another. Unlike Bittorrent and other new-fangled protocols, it is a client-server system; files are uploaded to a central housing system, the 'server', and from there are made available to 'clients' which connect. An anonymous stranger was kind enough to donate an anonymous FTP-server to the Music-loving NF denizens. Anonymous FTP just means that you log in anonymously--and you know what that means. To access this service, you will need an FTP client, a couple popular ones are Smart FTP, BulletProof FTP, and CuteFTP; and for FireFox users, here's a nifty FTP extension: If you're used to Windows, SmartFTP is recommended; here's a link to its help-file: FTP Server #1 (Currently Active): The address is: ftp.jamesphineasmccaffrey.com Port: 21 (which is the default) The username is: anonymous Password should be of the form: FTP Server #2 (Backup): Address: ftp.hugemassif.com port: 21 username: anonymous password of the form: Rules: No rules, but remember, it's good to give Support: Please contact Nybarius, either through PM, the boards, or at Nybarius AT gmail DOT com if you have any problems, questions, or suggestions. Thanks! PS: Yay, finally I'll have a popular post PPS: Keep in mind that nobody's paying me to do this, or anything; I was just thought the music-cult needed a place to back up their files. All thanks (be they reps, ups, or money) are heartily appreciated!
