CONSULTING ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS
It is our policy to reduce the e-mail traffic produced by e-mail attachments, KANRAD Engineering prefers using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) for sending and receiving files to and from our office.
If the file you are attaching to your e-mail message is greater than 500K bytes, we ask that you send us this file via FTP. By the way, all large files should be sent via FTP whenever possible.
If you are unfamiliar with this process, there are many websites and programs that will instruct you on its use. Some of the FTP programs that are available are: WSFTP from Ipswitch, Total Commander from Christian Ghisler, Internet Neighborhood from Deerfield, CuteFTP, and others too numerous to mention.
Our preferred FTP client is Total Commander for FTP transfers. This application is a file management utility with excellent FTP features. We have an on-site FTP server. You will need a username and password to login. You can obtain this information by contacting our office. Here are sample screenshots of Total Commander and Internet Explorer
Our FTP server is setup for Anonymous Logins & Username/Password Logins. For Anonymous Logins, you can only read files from our server. You cannot write files (upload) to our server. For Username/Password Logins, you will be able to read (download) files and also write (upload) files to our server in the 'To Kanrad' folder.
Once you are familiar with your FTP clients features, the following information is what you will need to send and receive files from our server:
Session Name: KANRAD Engineering
Host Name: ftp.kanrad.net
Remote Directory or Folder: /From Kanrad
Remote Directory or Folder: /To Kanrad
Local Directory or Folder: C:\Windows\download
You can also use your browser to download (Read
from KANRAD) and upload (Write to KANRAD). For Anonymous Logins, just
enter in the address area ftp.kanrad.net
or click on the link. For Username/Password Logins, you will also need
to click on the 'File' pulldown, click 'Login' and enter the Username
and Password. Once you are logged in, click on the From Kanrad
or To Kanrad Folders as appropriate. If you do not see any
Folders or Folders that are missing, click your Refresh or Reload
button on your browser to update your cache. To send a file to us,
just drag the file to the To Kanrad folder. If you need to
download a file from us, just click on the From Kanrad folder
and click on the file you need. A dialogue box will pop up inform you
to save the file. We also have two other folders. The 'Download'
folder are useful applications we use. The 'FTP Clients' folders are
the installation programs for various FTP clients. This way you don't
have to search for it. We add applications to these folders from time
That's all you really need to know. It's really not that difficult and you will do your part in relieving the traffic generated by e-mail attachments. E-mail was originally designed for quick notes, small letters and small files. Please be conscious of your e-mail attachments prior to sending them through cyberspace.
