FTP and IP
« on: October 30, 2018, 06:47:42 PM »
So we receive giant paper statements from a customer, which I have the option to get digitally from here on (yes please, no more line by line data entry woo!) but they asked me to send them the IP of my FTP site. I can set them up an FTP account but where do I find the IP?

Ta,
M

EDIT: omg never mind, I'm an idiot.

Normally, someone would FTP access via a named server (e.g., ftp.mysite.com) rather than an IP address, particularly if it's a shared server (an IP address is not unique to your account).

Do not give others your account's master FTP sign-on (it's a security risk). Set them up with their own FTP account (logon and password). That way, they have access to only a small sandbox, rather than to everything.
