Acquire SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) App
SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) is used to transfer files from your desktop to the server. Non-secure FTP connections will not work with UNF's server. In other words, you must use SFTP (Port 22) not FTP.
Any SFTP app should work, but if you are not sure which one to use, we recommend PuTTY. It can be downloaded from here.
Connecting to the Server
Information you will need to setup access:
- Hostname is osprey.unf.edu
- Username is your UNF ID / N number (note: "n" must be lowercase, for example "n00001234")
- Password is your UNF ID password (the same used to access all other UNF accounts, such as myWings).
- Port should be set to 22 if not by default.
Configuring via Dreamweaver Settings:
Server Name: My Website
Connect Using: SFTP
SFTP Address: osprey.unf.edu
Root Directory: homepage/
Web URL: http://osprey.unf.edu/homepage
Configuring via SSH Settings:
Host Name: osprey.unf.edu
User Name: Your N number
Port Number: 22
The full path to your Osprey home page will be /home/##/~n00001234 ...where ## are the last two digits of your N Number and n00001234 is your N Number.
Creating the Homepage Folder & Index Page
Once logged in, all your Web page files should be located within a directory called "homepage". If the folder does not exist, you will need to create it. Both the "homepage" folder and the "index.html" (homepage file) must be lowercase.
Viewing your Site
After transferring files to the server, the site can be accessed at www.unf.edu/~________, which works with both your user alias and your N number. For example: www.unf.edu/~ozzie.osprey or www.unf.edu/~n00001234.
