Web Publishing: Using FTP


FTP is File Transfer Protocol: it allows personal computers to connect to servers over the Internet, and to copy files to and from the server. LITS recommends the use of the Cyberduck FTP client.

Connecting to the Web Server

To connect to the web server, you will need to open a session in the FTP application on your personal computer, using the following values to "open a connection":

Host:

workgroup.hamilton.edu

Port: 990 (implicit SSL)
995 (explicit SSL)

See details for Cyberduck and Filezilla below.

TLS/SSL: Use TLS/SSL

Some FTP programs may refer to this as FTPS.

User ID:

domain\your_email_id

Password:

your_network_password (same as My Hamilton password)

Cyberduck-specific Settings

If you are using Cyberduck for FTP, use these settings:

FTP-SSL (Explicit AUTH TLS)Cyberduck FTP Example
workgroup.hamilton.edu
Port 995
hamilton-d\username (hamilton-s for students)

 

 

Filezilla-specific Settings

If you are using Filezilla for FTP, use these settings:

workgroup.hamilton.eduFilezilla example
Port 995
FTP - File Transfer Protocol
Require explicit FTP over TLS
Logon Type: Normal
hamilton-d\username (hamilton-s for students)

 

 

When using FTP, you must identify the domain (user group) you belong to along with your standard user name.

Domains
Students: hamilton-s
Employees: hamilton-d

Examples
1. A student named John Smith would sign in as: hamilton-s\jsmith
2. An instructor names Jane Roberts would log in as: hamilton-d\jroberts
 

Your Web password should be the same as your My Hamilton password and network password.

If you do not know your password, you can send an email to helpdesk@hamilton.edu to request assistance.

 

Use this information to make your FTP connection, then navigate to your web space by double clicking on the folders shown in your FTP window.
