Web Area Setup Help Using CuteFTP
The Personal Web Space provided by CamTel.Net/Cameron Telephone Company
is an unmanaged area. Cameron Telephone Company/CamTel.Net will not be providing
technical support for this area beyond the scope as defined below. Users who have purchased the
Web Space package will receive 5 megabytes of Personal Web Space with a limit of 250 megabytes
of file transfers (extra space and transfer are available at an additional charge). We ask that
you refrain from posting sexually explicit material to your Web Space. Offenders may lose Web
Space privileges and/or all other Internet services at the discretion of CamTel.Net/Cameron
Telephone Company. Other restrictions and limitations may apply.
Checklist for User Web Page Setup
A separate Web Space package (contact customer service department to order).
A Web Publishing program to create and modify your Web Pages. Web Pages, or HTML pages,
are actually text files that contain instructions that tell your browser what to do. Being text
files, they can be edited with any text editor (such as Windows Notepad or DOS's edit) by an
experienced HTML programmer. For the beginner there are many WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You
Get) Web Publishing Packages available. There are commercially available ones that you
can mail order or pick up at your local software store and there are, also, shareware ones that
you can download from various
sites. Many of the Web Publishing Packages that are available
come with FTP clients for the transferring of files between your local computer and your Web
Space on the webserver. If you acquire one of the previously mentioned packages that includes
an FTP client, you do not need to acquire an FTP program as mentioned below.
An FTP program to transfer the files in your computer to your Personal Web Space.

Using CuteFTP to access your Personal Web Space.
Step One - Connecting to your user directory
Click on the FTP icon. If the Sites Managers windows appears,
click on the Exit button. Select Quick Connect.
Under Host address enter user.camtel.net. Enter your login name and password
into the appropriate boxes. Select Normal Login type and Auto-detect Transfer type, then click
on "OK" to gain access to your Personal Web Space. When you login to the server you
will always start in the same directory. This directory is named the same as your login name
and will henceforth be referred to as your user directory.
Step Two - Uploading your Web Page
FTP your web page contents to your user directory. This is accomplished by
clicking on the empty left hand pane of the window. This left-hand pane represents your
local machine (your computer) while the right-hand pane represents the
remote machine (our Internet server). Now click on Ftp
from the menu and select Change dir. Type in the letter of the drive where
your web pages are stored on your local machine and press Enter.
Finally navigate your local drive to find the directory where your web
pages are stored. Your screen should look similar to the example.
WHEN YOU COPY FILES UP TO THE WEBSERVER, YOU WILL OVERWRITE ANY FILES OF THE
SAME NAME. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP COPY OF THESE FILES.
Highlight all the files to be moved to your Personal Web Space, click
on Ftp, and then select Upload. This will copy all the
highlighted files from your hard drive to your user directory (your Personal Web Space on Camtel.Net).
All of the highlighted files in this directory will be published under the following URL:
http://user.camtel.net/johndoe where johndoe is replaced by your user name.
