SSH/SFTP/SCP

Your username and password should be the same as for your webmail (webmail) and Blackboard login.

In order to upload web pages, change file permissions or just browse your directory you will need to use an SSH/SFTP/SCP client.

For Windows users, you can find a link to download an SSH client and installation instructions at the following url (in the instructions replace the Host Name with webtech.kettering.edu):
http://www.putty.org

For Linux/Unix users, most installations and distributions install a command line SSH/SFTP client. Please see your systems man pages for details. If you have konqueror installed then you can also use it to browse/copy files by putting sftp://{username}@webtech.kettering.edu in the address bar (substituting your username for {username}).

Accounts are removed promptly at the end of the semester, so please make copies of anything you want to keep before the end of the semester.
