ULYSSIS doesn't support ftp, because it is insecure. However, we support sftp (ftp over ssh). This works similar as ssh.

On the server, your files are located in /home/group/username/. For a normal user with username username/ this will be /home/user/username/, for an organisation with username organisation/ this will be /home/org/organisation/ etc.

Non-graphical methods

The most common way to transfer files is with a terminal by using the scp command.
Copying file to host:
scp SourceFile user@host:directory/TargetFile
Copying file from host:
scp user@host:directory/SourceFile TargetFile scp -r user@host:directory/SourceFolder TargetFolder

You don't need to use the full path to your file. You may you the relative path, starting from your home directory. For example:
scp index.html user@ssh1.ulyssis.org:www/index.html

Graphical methods

The graphical methods are explained in Accessing your files.
