Using a Linux workstation

In our example, we will use the LFTP client in the repository:

apt-get install lftp

or with the distribution:

yum install lftp

then:

lftp -u 'PCC\c61xx865_admin' pcc-198-27-72-xx.ovh.ca

Please remember to insert the domain name in the format pcc-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx.ovh.[com|ca] to ensure that the certificate is valid, otherwise the connection will not work. Once logged in:

lftp PCC\c61xx865_admin@pcc-198-27-72-xx.ovh.ca:~> ls
04-18-14 02:07PM <DIR> Data
04-18-14 02:17PM <DIR> StoredVms

Go to the "Data" folder. Here your ISOs will appear on the VMM:

cd Data

Then insert "put" for the ISO you want to upload:

put LinuxICv35.iso

You will then see it appear in the folder:

ls
03-05-14 05:37PM 23480320 LinuxICv35.iso
04-17-14 05:24PM <DIR> VHDs

Using a Windows workstation

The Windows FTP client supports FTPS, so there is no need for any additional tools.

You simply need to open a web browser and enter the FTP URL in the address bar:

You then need to use the username and password provided upon delivery to log in. Then go to the "Data" folder:

You now just need to drag and drop your ISOs/VHDX into this folder to then use them on Dedicated Cloud Hyper-V as a Service.
