note that you will need to be connected (modem, ISDN
or adsl) into the Omninet to upload your WebPages. Provision can be made
for connections outside of our Network, if you have a static IP.
This guide is designed to help users who have created there own web pages
and are ready to "upload" those pages to the Omninet server. If
you haven't created any web pages we suggest using Microsoft Frontpage and
a tutorial book to get you started.
In accordance with Australia's
Internet Content Regulation Scheme Omninet does not allow the
following to be stored on any server within the Omninet network:
Uploading your webpage
The first thing to do is make
sure your first web page or your main page is saved as index.htm (this
acts as a default web page, so visitors don't receive a directory listing
of all your web files)
Next you'll need a program than can transfer/upload your web pages (files)
web server. You can use CuteFTP which can be downloaded by clicking here
. Once you've downloaded and installed your FTP program you need to
connect to Omninet and run the program. The first time you run a FTP
program a pop-up window usually appears asking for server connect
information. Listed below are the common requirements.
Host name : ftp.omninet.net.au
User name : (same as your Omninet login name)
Password : (same as your Omninet password)
Leave all other settings
as default (same as you first saw them).
Once these setting have been entered and you've pressed the connect button
you should have a new layout that will usually display the files on your
computer on the left and your webspace on the right.
Next you need to
create a folder in your web space called www to do this simply
right click anywhere in the blank area in your web space panel and select
the make new directory option and type in www. Usually this
is done already on the Omninet web server when accounts are created.
If you double click
on the new www folder you'll be taken to the area your web pages will be
Finally to upload the pages you need to select the files in the
left panel and click the up arrow (upload) button. Another way to upload
is to double click on the file in the left panel or another way is to left
click and hold down and drag the file from the left panel to the right.
To replace (update) an
existing file (web page or pic), you must first delete it off our web
server. To do this, right click on the file on the right side panel (our
web server), then click delete. Once it has gone, just then double left
click on your new file on the left panel
After the files have
been uploaded you can then view your web page by opening your web browser
and entering the following URL or address.
(note you replace username with your Omninet login name)
