FTP Browse

Use this command to open the FTP Browser.  The FTP Browser consists mainly of four panes.  The top left pane displays the directory tree for the local machine.  The top right pane displays the directory tree on the remote system (FTP server).  The panes directly below these (to the left and right) display the contents of the active/selected folder in each respective directory tree.  The bottom pane displays the progress for active transfers.

 

The following controls are included in the browser:

Multiple files may be selected using CTRL+mouse click or CTRL+SHIFT+mouse click and moved between the local and remote systems via drag and drop.  With a directory (or multiple directories) selected, the user may drag and drop them onto a folder in the top or bottom pane of the remote explorer to upload them to the desired folder.  Users may also drag and drop selected items onto a file or to empty space in the file listing in the bottom pane of the remote explorer to upload to the active remote directory.
