is your remote directory (web server). Navigate to the files you wish
to upload locally (left side) and highlight them. Once they are highlighted,
click the right arrow in between the two directory listings. This will
transmit the files to the web server.

the left arrow.
You will be automatically logged off our server after 5 minutes of no
