You have to install FTP support yourself. ColdFusion Builder 2016 provides the installers you need. The steps are as follows:

  1. In the menu 'Help', select 'Install New Software';
  2. For the input field 'Work with:', select '--All Available Sites --';
  3. Make sure that the following option is checked: 'Show only software applicable to target environment';
  4. Type in the search field the word: remote. ColdFusion Builder will then search for installers having the word 'remote'.
  5. Locate in the search result the category "General Purpose Tools". Tick all the checkboxes under the category. It includes, among others, Remote Services.
  6. Click twice on 'Next', accept the license agreement and click 'Finish' to install.
  7. Restart ColdFusion Builder when prompted.

You now have FTP support on ColdFusion Builder. To make an FTP connection, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the menu 'File' => 'New' => 'Other';
  2. Open the tab 'Remote System Explorer' and double-click on 'Connection';
  3. Click on 'FTP Only', then on 'Next';
  4. Enter your FTP connection settings.

Hello,

In the Remote FTP Remote FTP Only System Connection window, it asks me to fill in the below

1. Parent profile: I think this is my local machine, right?

2. Host name: what is this? (Something like www.site.com? or something like 126.23.45.677)

3. Connection name: what is it?

4. Description: manual text

Thank you

I suspect you are looking at wrong window. Let's start again.

You have, as you say, established a connection to the FTP server.

Follow the menu Window => Close All Perspectives.

If you now follow the steps in my last post, you should see a tab called Remote Systems. This tab contains the details of the remote folder, files, etc. See example in the attached image.

To return to the ColdFusion perspective, follow Window => Open Perspective (=> Other) . Choose ColdFusion (default) and click on Open.

I know I can transfer file from local to remote site by dragging the file but I wonder if there is any way to do so.  I tried to right click on the local file but I did not see command to do so

Thanks again

In the remote environment: CTRL-V on the folder (paste the file)
