Welcome to the netINS
Showcase. As a contributor, you may use 20 megabytes of disk space
to make information available to the world via the World Wide Web.
Your Showcase space
is located on showcase.netINS.net (with FTP access through basic.netins.net).
The URL path to your
homepage will be:
First, if you plan
to use Microsoft's FrontPage and/or Web Publishing Wizard, please
review these notes.
To upload files to
your Showcase account from a Windows or Windows 95 machine connected
through PPP, we recommend that you use SmartFTP (as
used in this example) or a similar FTP program. You may also need
to get a Zip/Unzip program.
Start up this program
and open a local browser by clicking the "FTP" menu at the top and selecting "Local Browser".
Fill in the address bar with "basic.netins.net"
When you have this filled in, click the "connect" button in the upper left. This will bring up the Login Screen. Fill in your Username and Password, then click "OK".
You will now have 2 windows open in Smart FTP. The one labeled "Local Browser" will display the contents of your computer's hard disk. The one labeled "basic.netins.net" will display the contents of your free webspace. Open the .web directory on the server by double clicking ".web" in the "basic.netins.net" pane.
If you are uploading
text files, such as HTML documents, you should upload them as ASCII
data. If you are uploading graphic files, such as GIF or JPEG images,
you should upload them as Binary.
NOTE: Your "home page" must be called index.html and should
overwrite the existing index.html file that resides in your .web
directory. This will remove the "Already Registered" page that
is found when you look at your Showcase site.
Please note that your
Showcase files reside on a Unix system, and can not have spaces
in the file name. Also, file names are case sensitive. We suggest
using all lowercase letters for your file names, such as 'webpage.html'
to avoid confusion.
