How do i make an FTP connection to Power PMAC?
The ftp root on the powerpmac is /var/ftp. You cannot place anything there. You can only place
data in the subfolders.

From a Windows host you can use the Explorer and enter in the IP address as http://ftp.192.168.0.200 Then you will be able to explore the FTP area as any other drive. This will allow drag and drop of files to and from the PPmac

From a Windows host you can also use the old DOS shell (now called CMD) and just enter the address as http://ftp.192.168.0.200 Then you can use the DOS commands to navigate.

From a Linux host you can use the Nautilus file browser and enter in the IP address as http://ftp.192.168.0.200 Then you will be able to explore the FTP area as any other drive. This will allow drag and drop of files to and from the PPmac

From a Linux host you can use a terminal. Here is an example of opening the FTP connection and transferring a file.
