Description of the Login Name field


The Login field is how you identify yourself to InstantWeb servers when transferring files to and from our servers. The information you enter in this field, combined with the password you enter in the password field will be used to authenticate you.

Login names are also used to authenticate you when you enter a restricted directory. If you lock some of your directories, you would need to enter your login name and password to enter those directories.
