Below are instructions for uploading files from Microsoft Office 2007, installed on a PC running either Microsoft Vista or Windows 7, using File Transfer Protocol (FTP). FTP is the only supported protocol for UTORweb.

PLEASE NOTE: FTP is an unsecured protocol. This means that any data sent, including your UTORid password, may be intercepted and viewed by third parties
