Transfer files with SFTP

Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) can be a useful way to transfer files between your desktop and TeamForge Lab Management.

SFTP is an extension to the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol, which emulates File Transfer Protocol (FTP). File transfers made with SFTP show up immediately in your TeamForge Lab Management environment. Any TeamForge Lab Management client machines you are logged into immediately reflect changes made to your home directory from your desktop.
  1. On Linux, UNIX, or Windows with Cygwin, run the command-line SFTP program with a command like this:
    sftp username@$external_host
    Note: There are also graphical clients available for Linux.
  2. On Windows, we recommend using the Filezilla program to manage your SFTP transfers. Filezilla is available as a plugin for the Firefox web browser with an easy-to-use Explorer-like interface.
