FTP file transfer using iCMT GIS II, iGSGIS II or Deed Calls Pro
August 26, 2013 Leave a comment
Besides using iTunes to transfer files between your iOS device and your PC, some of the CMTINC.COM iOS apps will also let you send out files via email. Some of the apps, such as iCMT GIS II, iGSGIS II and Deed Calls Pro will also let you transfer files over the Internet using File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
FTP file transfer requires a FTP server and a ftp client. An iOS app that provides the FTP function will use an FTP client to let you send or get files to or from the PC running the FTP server.
To access the FTP function, select Main Menu of the iOS app, select Job, then select FTP.
Enter the IP address of the ftp site you want to connect to.
If a user name and password for accessing the ftp site is required then enter them into the corresponding boxes. For an FTP site that provides anonymous FTP access, simply mark the Anonymous checkbox, and the User Name will be automatically filled in with “anonymous”.
You may select the FTP Path and have it point to the desired folder on the PC. The files on the iPad and the files on the ftp site will be listed separately.
Select the files you wish to send from one side to the other then tap the corresponding large arrow button to complete the transfer.
If you have PC-GIS X, you could use the FTP Server function on its Utilities menu to transfer files to or from iCMT GIS II, iGSGIS II or Deed Calls Pro.
