New to FTP, need to give credentials to my vendor

#1 Post by jayallen27 » 2020-02-26 17:57

Hello, I have a tire business and my vendor is asking for my FTP credentials to send me a daily inventory update file. I have Filezilla Client downloaded. What do I need to do now? I have no idea how to set it up and/or what credentials to give to my vendor.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Your vendor wants to actively send you files, which requires you running an FTP server such as FileZilla Server

The hardest part of setting up FileZilla Server is configuring those pesky firewalls and NAT routers. Please refer you network administrator to our Network Configuration guide.
