Transferring files over SFTP

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

If you want to copy an empty folder, you have to add -r, for example:

scp -r SourceFolder user@host:directory/TargetFolder

Copying file from host:

scp user@host:directory/SourceFile TargetFile

If you want to copy an empty folder, you have to add -r, for example:

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

You can find more info on the scp commands by using:

man scp

Graphical methods

The graphical methods are explained in Accessing your files.
