Hi,

Is there any way I can upload files using my browser. I'm aware of the download syntax (ftp://username:password@yoursite.com)

Thanks,

Priyo

Yes, the version 4.0 of your browser allows this, but the web site where you connect has to give you permission.

Particularly with Netscape Navigator ther is an option in the "File" menu that says "Upload file".

Now, this is what Netscape's on-line help says:

*Upload File (Publish in Composer)

  Lets you select a file to send to the FTP
  server specified by the current URL. This
  command is only available when the
  current page accesses an FTP site.
  Alternatively, you can send files to the
  FTP site by dragging and dropping file
  icons from the desktop to the Navigator
  window. To do this, you'll need "write"
  privileges to the FTP site

Regards.
