  What method are you using to FTP these files from your PC to your Sun?  
If you're using a command-line interface such as ftp or ncftp, then you 
can make use of the optional, second argument of the put and mput 
commands.  When you send the files from your PC to the Sun, then you can 
just use a command like this:

	ftp>put myhtml.htm myhtml.html

  If you're usings a graphical-interface to FTP the files, such as 
ftptool, then you should be able to like the target files name in a 
text-box.  It should be easily accessed when you're transferring the files.
