CSE 115/503 - Spring 2011 - Using FileZilla to Transfer Files

Click here to get FileZilla

Using FileZilla

  1. Start up FileZilla.
  2. Go to File > Site Manager.

Managing sites
Create a location for timberlake by doing the following:
  1. Click "New Site" - note that you should name the site in the left side of the window before moving to the right side
  2. In the "Site details" section, enter the following information:
    • Host: timberlake.cse.buffalo.edu
    • Port: 22
    • Servertype: SFTP using SSH2
    • Logontype: normal
    • A space for your username and password will now appear
    • User: (your UB Unix username)
    • Password: (your UB Unix password)
  3. Click "Connect".
Connection to pollux
You will now be connected to the FTP server. When you load up FileZilla again and want to connect to timberlake, use the drop-down menu of this icon here by clicking the triangle.
The general layout is as follows:
  1. This section describes the communication with the server. It isn't very important for your uses, unless you're having a hard time connecting to the server.
  2. This is the location on your file system where files will go to if you download them. The exact location is specified in the "Local Site" box. The lower part of this section shows you the folders and files inside the current location.
  3. This is the location and files on the server you're connected to. If you double-click a file, you will download it. However, if you double-click a folder, you will see the contents inside the folder. If you want to download a folder, right-click it and select "download" (see diagram).
  4. This is the status window. It shows you information and error messages about files your are downloading or have downloaded. It tells you how fast the file tranfer is going and other similar information.
