      FTP

      For the Macintosh

      Fetch is a user-friendly Macintosh FTP client; it allows point-and-click, drag and drop file transfers to and from any machine with an FTP server, over a TCP/IP network. Fetch is free to users affiliated with an educational institution or charitable non-profit organization; all other users may purchase a license. A single user license is $25.00 US.

      Fetch can be downloaded through the internet at: http://www.dartmouth.edu/pages/softdev/fetch.html

      For Windows

      FTP Explorer provides a graphical interface and FTP Explorer is free for home or educational use. The registration fee for all other uses is $30.00 US.

      The home site for downloading software is: http://www.ftpx.com

      How to get started using Rotary's FTP site

      Contact your sales or customer service representative and ask them to fax you the Customer FTP Registration form.

      Take a few minutes to fill out the form and fax it back to us. Our fax number is 253.813.2932.

      Within 5 working days we will contact you with your personal user name and password. If you have a specific user name and password you would like please add it to the Customer Information form.

      Preparing and Sending Files

      Before you upload a job to the FTP site we recommend your files be put into a folder and compressed.

      If you are using Stuffit, drop the folder onto the "DropStuff" icon. You will see a new folder on your desktop with the same name you gave it, but it will have a ".sit" folder.

      Start Stuffit and open the ".sit" folder

      From the menu bar pull down the "Translate" menu and choose "Mac Binary". You now have a new folder with a ".sit.bin" extension and are ready to upload your files
