Flip2Media maintains an on-premise file transfer system, similar in function to cloud services like dropbox. Our employees may send you emails with links that you will use to download files, or “file requests” where you can upload files to us using a link.
We can also establish a more versatile file transfer account for you to manage inbound and outbound assets. It can be managed with a web browser or a traditional FTP program.
Option 1: USE A WEB BROWSER:
1) Click this link http://ftp.flip2media.com
2) Enter your login name and password (case sensitive)
3) Right click (ctrl-click in Mac) to download the file. We recommend right-clicking so that you can save it on the desktop most easily.
Option 2: USE AN FTP PROGRAM
FTP “File Transfer Protocol” is a superior method to transfer files to and from Flip2Media (F2M). If the term is unfamiliar, just use a browser as described above.
Any standard FTP client will work. Set it for passive (pasv) mode.
Your user name and password should be obtained from your account executive at F2M.
Even if you follow these instructions, there are a variety of network conditions that can cause FTP to fail. Most often this is due to “port blocking” or other IT policies that are employed as security measures. The “web browser method” rarely fails, as it uses the same network scheme as regular browsing (internet port 80). If you are familiar with FTP but are experiencing problems, consider using the web browser interface for your immediate needs, and contact technical support at F2M to resolve your FTP issue.
Uploading and downloading files is always possible, even if you do not have (or remember) your login/password. To upload, use “upload” as the name and “upload” as the password.
You can login to your email account if you have a flip2media.com email address.
