By now you've logged into your web space.  You should see two windows within FrontPage:  Local Web site and Remote Web site.  The Local Web site is what is on your computer while the Remote Web site is what is on the server.  To transfer your files and folders, do the following:

Towards the bottom, right corner of the screen you'll see a Publish Web site button.  Above the button are three options:  Local to remote, Remote to local, and Synchronize.

1.  To transfer files from your computer (local) to the server (remote), select Local to remote.
2.  To transfer files from the server (remote) to your computer (local), select Remote to local.
3.  To make what you have on the server (remote) the same as what you have on your computer (local), select Synchronize.

To begin transferring files, click Publish Web site.


FrontPage will transfer the files.  It may take a few minutes or more depending on the amount and size of the files being transferred.


When you finish, FrontPage will let you know if the transfer is successful or not.

Click Done.
