Hi imidex,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. We have a guide on getting started with FTP and it covers the settings you need to use. Here's a link to it:

You'll want to be sure to use the <strong> </strong> as the host name. Be sure to replace biz### or ecbiz### with your actual server information. The server information can be found in your AMP account under Account & Billing Details.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
