  Creating sites & connecting in KBear:

Key Settings:

FTP Host/Address = follows this format: users.ispname.com

Initial Remote Directory = Typically, no directory, initial remote directory or path.

Login/UserID = your username@ispname.com which will route you to the right directory.

Personal Website URL = The address of your website will follow this format: http://users.ispname.com/username

KBear has a nice, easy-to-navigate interface.  KBear is also very simple to configure.  Follow these steps:

On the Toolbar, click Sitemanager and select KBear Sitemanager from the menu.

 

The KBearSiteManagerBase screen appears.

In this screen, you'll enter in any information required to connect and download/upload files.

Site Label  =  Enter in a name for your site; you can call it anything you'd like.
Host name = follows this format: users.ispname.com
Port  =  keep the default port of 21.
Protocol  =  set this to ftp.
 

User name = your username@ispname.com which will route you to the right directory.
Password  =  enter your dial-up password.
Important:  passwords are case-sensitive.  Ensure your Caps Lock is NOT enabled.
 

Local Directory  =  this is the directory on your computer (local).  In this example, I enter the path to the Desktop.
Remote Directory = enter the path to the directory on the server.  follow this format:  /username.
Remote Directory  =  enter the path to the directory on the server.  follow this format:  /username.
Note:  without the "/" at the beginning, you will not be able to access the directory.

Note:  if you save the configuration, the site's label will appear in the list of available sites.  In this example, "My Web Site" is in that list and highlighted in blue.  To access the site, simply highlight it and click "Connect".

 

Transferring Files:

The main KBear window appears.  The Local Directory (a folder on your computer) appears on the left-hand side, while the Remote Directory (a folder on the server) appears on the right-hand side.

Transferring files is simple.  Do the following:

Upload files to server:  click and drag a file from the Local Directory to the Remote Directory.

Download files from server:  click and drag a file from the Remote Directory to the Local Directory.
