Thread: Struggling with FTP

  1. #1

    Default Struggling with FTP

    First time using this method to upload my MNNH update. I've tried uploading a few times, but have had no success. Always a rookie who appreciates any help.

    What program are you using?
    What settings are you using?
    What file type are you trying to upload?
    What error do you get?
    Cheers
    Derek

    Try this:

    You're file has to be a zip file or it will not be excepted.

    Select File Library, then Upload from the menu.

    Scroll down and find the blue link to https://www.trainsim.com/vbts/tsupload.php

    Choose you zip file and add the full name including the .zip extension to the name field.

    Scroll down a bit and fill in the various fields including a screenshot Nels can post with your upload.

    If you've done this correctly there will be a 'thank you for uploading' message.

    Paul :-)

    Hi Folks,

    Or - remove the middleman - and do it the old fashioned way via the command line:

    Code:
    C:\Users\scott>ftp ftp.trainsim.com
    Connected to ftp.trainsim.com.
    220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------

    When I changed from Firefox to Opera for a browser, Opera will not connect to the FTP site directly, but I have no trouble connecting from this site.

    Using Opera GX.
    Following the base FTP link posted on the upload page
    Uploading a zip file containing a Route around 761mb compressed (1.6gb folder inside)
    No errors so far, but the page doesn't load. I'll try it with firefox tonight

    Okay, I'll try with Firefox. Zip file is 761mb rather not split it into 10 zip files.

    Zip file is 761mb compressed. Rather not split into parts, but will have to if I do not get this FTP thing working.

    So I got to this point:
    SofarSogood.jpg
    I clicked the incoming folder and dragged and dropped the file. It made a copy of the original folder, but I hoped it worked we shall see.
