Then you don't have your ftp server configured correctly - you need to add an account that MX can use, I'm not sure that you'll be able to get MX to use anonymous ftp. Or just copy the files, as I've just suggested.

Thanks Steve. Is there a list of the files somewhere I need to transfer?

Cheers

For the 'standard' web site, all of the .htm files that get created in the web directory, plus all of the .json files that get generated in the main directory (I'm moving these to the web directory in the next build). Plus realtimegauges.txt for the gauges.

If the anonymous user is allowed to create and replace files it should be possible to logon as below.

It won't handle wildcards - perhaps in the future.

Note that you shouldn't select "process" for files that don't have web tags in them, e.g. the json files.
