How do you transfer data from a server to a Windows-based panel via the FTP protocol?
Using the "File Transfer Protocol" you can move files between a WinCE panel (e.g. MP370) used as an FTP client and a PC used as an FTP server. This entry explains how to configure the FTP server on the PC and how to connect the WinCE panel to this server using the Pocket Internet Explorer. A requirement for this is that you have a correctly functioning Ethernet connection between the two devices created using a cross-over cable or a hub.
The Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer, which can be optionally transferred to a Windows CE panel using ProSave, only supports downloads from the server. Uploads are not supported.
