FTP QUESTIONS


  • How do I ftp to QSL.NET?
    Check out QSL.NET's FTP page at: http://www.qsl.net/kb9lpj/ftp/ftp.html

  • I get the message: "can't get ftp://ftp.qsl.net" When I try to upload my homepage.
    You are trying to put your webpage in a place that doesn't exist. Make sure the Host Name/Address is correctly set to "ftp.qsl.net" (no quotes) and that the remote directory path in your FTP program is blank.

  • I FTP'd my files to qsl.net, but when I go to my homepage's URL, http://www.qsl.net/xxxxxx, I don't see the file(s) I uploaded.
    Most likely, you didn't name your main file "index.html" (no quotes). You must name your main page, the one you want people to see first, index.html.

  • I uploaded my page but it isn't in the index, whats wrong?
    Qsl.net automatically reindexes every day at 0800Z. Check then.

  • Some of my graphics or files don't work on my page, but I know the files are on the server, what happened?
    This is a Unix system, file names are case sensitive. That is to say, mypic.gif is not the same file as mypic.GIF or MYPIC.gif. So if you refer in you html script to MYPIC.GIF and you uploaded a file called mypic.gif, you won't see your picture. Best thing to do is always save files in lowercase, and always reference them in lowercase.

  • My password or username is not accepted by the server, but I know I typed them in correctly?
    UNIX is case sensitive. Paswords and usernames must be in the correct case!

  • I get the message:"220----+ WARNING ... * The computing equipment at QTH.NET is for the use of our..." What's wrong???
    First of all, here is the complete message:

  • I don't want certain files to show up on the Master Index at QSL.NET. What should I do?
    Every day at 0800Z the indexer program runs and reads every directory in the web area. It searches for any file named index.htm* Once it finds a file it looks for the tag <title>......</title> and strips out the information as the title of the page (this allows everyone to identify their page as they wish). If <title></title> does not exist it prints the full URL of the page.

    To fix this...

    Never use index.htm* for anything but the first web page. Never make a directory named index.htm*


    HTML QUESTIONS


  • How do I put a counter on my page?
    Just put this code into your HTML script:

    <img src="/cgi-bin/Count.cgi?dd=D|ft=3|df=xxxxxx.dat"align=absmiddle>

    Where:

    xxxxxx = your login name

  • Some of my graphics or files don't work on my page, but I know the files are on the server, what happened?
    This is a Linux system, file names are case sensitive. That is to say, mypic.gif is not the same file as mypic.GIF or MYPIC.gif. So if you refer in you html script to MYPIC.GIF and you uploaded a file called mypic.gif, you won't see your picture. Best thing to do is always save files in lowercase, and always reference them in lowercase.

  • How big can my hompage be? Are there size limits?
    There are NO quotas as long as your home page has meaningful ham radio content.

  • I can't get sound to work in Netscape or Internet Explorer, what gives?
    Try this HTML code:
    <BGSOUND SRC="xxxxxxx.xxx" LOOP="INFINITE">
    Or
    <object>
    <embed src="xxxxxxx.xxx" autostart=true hidden=true></embed>
    </object>

    Where xxxxxxx.xxx is the name of you file.

  • How do I get cgi file access to QSL.NET
    Due to high server loads cgi access is no longer provided. If you need more advanced web hosting services, including the ability to run your own scripts, create MySQL databases, etc., we recommend using QTH.com. Hosting services start at $4.95/mo. See http://hosting.qth.com.
