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.

http://www.mysite.com

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?

There is an ftp server running, yes.  Not sure how to check the ports on the firewall or even know how to decide whic h ones they are.  Windows Server 2012 R2.  IIS 8

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.

In the comment box click the image icon in the toolbar or click the Attach File link below the comment box

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?
