Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) Instructions

SFTP stands for Secure File Transfer Protocol. SFTP programs are mainly used to transfer files from your computer at home to your account on NSU's server. If you are publishing a web page to your NSU web space, for example, you may want to use an SFTP program. Using an SFTP program will allow you to view the files you have in your account, upload them, download them or delete them.

Be sure to request your Public Directory prior to using SFTP.

The NSU SFTP server accepts only secure connections. You may download a free SFTP program below.

Please select the SFTP program you are using:
