Accessing Secure FTP files at SDCOE using Filezilla

To access files on the secure FTP site at SDCOE, you must have an FTP client that supports either SFTP or FTPS, or both. The SDCOE CRC recommends that you use FileZilla, a free FTP program for file uploading and downloading to and from your FTP site, server, or host. To create and access and FTP site, follow Parts A, B, and C below.

A. Download Filezilla.
  1. Go to the Filezilla Client Download page at https://filezilla-project.org/download.php.
  2. Download the version appropriate for your platform (Windows, Mac, or Linux).
  3. Install it.
B. Configure the FTP site.
Before you do these steps, make sure that SDCOE gave you the host, port, username, and password.
  1. Launch Filezilla. After you have installed it, it should appear under your Start menu.
  2. At the top of the screen, click directly on the first icon to open the Site Manager. (If you are using a Mac, click File > Site Manager.)
  3. Click New Site. Enter a name that makes sense to you. The name should indicate the purpose of the site. Down the road, you might have various FTP sites to access different files.
  4. Enter the host, port, protocol (SFTP), logon type (Normal), username, and password provided to you by SDCOE. These are highlighted in yellow below.
