SCOUG OS/2 For You - January 1998


There's Help Finding the File You Want to FTP

thanks to Terry Warren

Have you ever been in the situation where you downloaded a much-needed file from an ftp site and then "lost" the file? And when you went to download it again, you found that you'd forgotten the name of the site (or, worse, you remembered the site but the file is no longer there)? If so, this tip is for you!

A special web site located in Trondheim, Norway, exsits solely for the purpose of identifying which ftp sites contain which files. Similar in concept to a web search, this searches ftp sites for a given filename rather than websites for given content.

To initiate the search, simply connect to this URL:

http://ftpsearch.ntnu.no

and you will get a form that includes an entry box for the filename plus a lot of other options (which you can mostly ignore). Once you fill in the exact filename - e.g., newdasd.exe (wildcards are NOT honored) - and press the SEARCH key, you will get back a list of all known ftp sites which have the file as well as a hot link to the specific directory to retrieve the file. The search results also include the file date, time, size, etc, and/or other fields of interest at your discretion.
