FTP With Microsoft Web Matrix

I am having difficulty ftp-ing into my new server with microsoft web matrix.  I am attaching a screen shot of the fields.  I guess I don't really know what they are all specifically referring to.  The settings there are from my old server.

1) I assume I can place the new ip address in for the server field;
2) Site path is the directory inside of inetpub that the source code resides in on the server
3) User Name and Password are self-explanatory;
4) I assume the destination url is where I am stumbling.  Don't know why this one was identifying one of my websites...not sure what to place there.

Thanks for the help...

Destination URL is the full url of your site - e.g.

This is giving me fits.  I feel like II have tried about everything.  I went online and made sure that I understood the WebMatrix2 exprectations for those fields but to no avail.  Could it be a setting on the server?

Possibly, is there an FTP server running on the server? Are the ports open in the Firewall?

What is the error message you are getting?
I assume the FTP account has been added?

Please attach the screenshot, it's silly to put an image in a word doc that you have to download to view it.

I don't believe I can paste a screenshot in here can i?  How do I take a screenshot (a virtual image) and make it a physical image.  Sorry, but i have always wondered this.  Just a (big) hole in my knowledge I guess.

I understand how to attach a file or embed an existing image.  What I don't get is how to take an "image" from the clipboard (which is essentially what happens when you take a screen shot via ctrl-ptr sc) and embed that into the message.  What am I missing?
