These instructions were written with the assumption that this is the first time you have setup your HTML Editor to connect to your website. If it is not, then the steps that we've outlined below might be slightly different.

Step 9. Make sure to check the box "Use Passive FTP".You can leave the Maximum Simutaneous Connections set to the default setting, click "Add" then "OK" to exit the settings.
Step 10. At the bottom left of your screen click on the "Publishing" tab. Then click on the link in the center of you screen titled "Connect to the current publishing destination".

You are all done! Now simply choose a file to edit from the list of files that appear.
