Publishing Web pages at CSU-Pueblo
Using Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) -- Examples
Each faculty and staff member is given 100 MB of storage on the University's Web server to host a personal Web site. Students are also given storage on the request of the professor to the Help Desk. Otherwise all students may take advantage of personal Website space with their Live@edu account. The instructions below are for students to upload/update their personal SecureFTP (SFTP) Web sites. Faculty and staff need to substitute their respective folders for uploading/updating their respective personal SFTP Web sites.
SecureFTP (SFTP) is a variation of the familiar File Transfer Protocol (FTP) process that protects your identity and transfers the data by encrypting the transmission. SecureFTP must be used to access the CSU-Pueblo SFTP server.
The Windows Version of the SecureFTP client by GLUB (free to use for non-commercial use) should be installed on most computers at the University, if it is not please contact the Help Desk. For your personal computer, you may download a free copy of SecureFTP from: www.glub.com/products/secureftp/.
