Getting Documents from the Web

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is an inexpensive and efficient way to transfer files between your computer and others on the Internet. You can download or receive any kind of file, including text, graphics, sound, and video files, from an FTP site—an Internet site dedicated to file transfer. To download a file, you need an ID and password to identify who you are. Anonymous FTP sites are open to anyone; they usually use anonymous as an ID and your full e-mail address as a password. You can also save the FTP site address to revisit the site later.

Click the Look In list arrow, and then click Add/Modify FTP Locations.
