Telewest Upload Information is in the second post below.
Since it is a question often asked I thought it might be an idea to post this information that I made available through another forum. If anyone has anything they can add or there are any errors in the information feel free to PM an admin or mod to get an ammendment
Uploading to and using your NTL webspace.
This can be achieved by either using a stand alone FTP program or by using IE.
Using an Ftp program you need to set it to connect to your webspace by giving it your details:
account name: xxx.xxx (normally in the form of firstname.lastname)
account password: xxxxx (your account password)
upload ftp address: upload.ntlworld.com
(note everything red is case sensitive)
In some windows variants you can point your browser to
So in my case I choose to move some files by opening explorer to the relevant directory I have the files in and then I point Internet Explorer to ftp://irene.keeler:MYPASSWORDHERE@upload.ntlworld.com
this leaves me with two windows open that I can put side by side on the screen.
Internet Explorer will show your NTL webspace and any files stored there, you can then drag and drop files to your space.
In Windows XP under "my network places" to make it easier, you can create it as a network connection using the ftp details as above.
You can also create it as a favourite in your Internet Explorer favourites list so you can access it easily through IE.
To save it as a favourite use the ftp://ACCOUNTNAME:PASSWORD@upload.ntlworld.com
with your details in as the address to be saved
