Perforce Support – FTP Server Upgrades for Faster File Uploads

As of July 30, 2014, Perforce customers looking to transfer files to our support teams should use our new FTP server “upload.perforce.com” instead of “ftp.perforce.com.” You can obtain login credentials from Support, or create your own credentials from your existing portal account.
