FTP Uploads

TCI Press offers three methods for sending your files. The preferred method is to use an industry standard FTP client (See sidebar, 'What is FTP?' ) to send and retrieve files. If you cannot use an FTP client, then you can use our Web-based file transfer system to upload a file to our server without using an FTP Client or for smaller files you may send an e-mail attachment.

1) FTP Client Software (Preferred)

This method requires that you have FTP client software installed on your system. FTP is the most reliable protocol for transferring files across the internet. Macintosh (OS 9.x) users may download Fetch, Macintosh (OS X) users may download Transmit (evaluation edition) and Windows (98/Me/NT/2000/XP) users may download WS_FTP Pro (evaluation edition). Contact your TCI Press sales represenative to get the login information needed by your FTP client software to use this file transfer method.

2) Web Browser

Users may upload files via their web browser by visiting http://70.91.132.57/login. We recommend that you compress your files/folder into one archive file (see sidebar, 'Sending Multiple files?').You'll be be prompted for your login information. Please enter the login information supplied by your TCI Press sales representative.

3) E-mail Attachment

Smaller files totalling 2MB OR LESS may be sent as e-mail attachments to graphics@tcipress.com. NOTE: to minimize upload times and to protect against file corruption, files sent as attachments MUST BE compressed into .ZIP or .SIT/.HQX file format. Please DO NOT send e-mail attachments to ANY OTHER of our e-mail addresses.

What is FTP?


FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. FTP client software allows you to transfer files between your hard drive and our in-house FTP server.

Ever wonder what "http" stands for in all of the Web sites you access with your Web browser? Hypertext Transfer Protocol is how your browser transfers files from remote web servers to graphically display web content on your monitor. Although HTTP does a good job of downloading HTML files and the small bitmaps displayed within them, it was never designed to transfer large files. However, with FTP, you can upload/download large files and resume transfer after interruptions, where you left off, saving time and aggravation.

 

Sending multiple files?


Macintosh Users - multiple files/folders should be compressed into a single .SIT or .HQX file before uploading to minimize upload times and to protect against file corruption. We recommend using Stuffit® from Aladdin Systems. The software is available as a free time-limited trial from www.aladdinsys.com.

Windows PC Users - multiple files/folders should be compressed into a single .ZIP file before uploading to minimize upload times and to protect against file corruption. We recommend WinZip® from WinZip Computing. The software is available as a free time-limited trial from www.winzip.com

IMPORTANT:
BE SURE TO INCLUDE ALL FONTS and ALL IMAGES used in your project in your .ZIP or STUFFIT (.SIT or .HQX) file!
