File Transfer Protocol(FTP) Tutorials

Section 1

FTP is an Internet protocol for transfering files between a server (such as the CORE web server) and any other computer with an Internet connection. An FTP client is a computer program that allows you to upload and download files from a server.

*If you are off-campus you will need to install the OIT VPN software in order to use secure FTP/SFTP. If you do not have the VPN software or you do not wish to download the software, select FTP instead of SFTP (if available). 

The following are setup instructions for our recommended FTP clients. Any FTP client should work as well.
