Downloading Files Using FTP

Many Windows browsers no longer support FTP by default, although it can usually be re-enabled. For example, to enable FTP in Google Chrome:

Other Methods to Download Files

1. Use Internet Explorer, which is built into Windows 10. If it is not enabled:

Once Internet Explorer is enabled, a desktop shortcut can be created using "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe".

2. Use any FTP Client software (FileZilla, CuteFTP, WinSCP, Cyberduck, etc.).

Server: ftp.drivehq.com
User: anonymous
Pass: mike@gmail.com (or your email adddress)
Path: MarshallSoft/PublicFolder
Mode: Binary, Passive

3. Use the Windows FTP Command Line Client to download in anonymous mode. For example, to download a file from our download site:

Open a command window, go to the directory into which you want to download, then type these commands:

ftp -A ftp.drivehq.com
cd MarshallSoft
cd PublicFolder
binary
literal pasv
get FILENAME
bye

where the FILENAME above is the file to be downloaded. Note that most filenames begin with the customer ID followed by a underscore (not a space).

The Windows command line FTP client is located at "C:\Windows\System32\ftp.exe"
