This example shows screenshots from the Windows version of FileZilla. This is very similar to the MacOS and Linux versions. Please see their website for more operating system specific documentation.
Before proceeding, users must have:
1. Generated a private/public key pair. On Windows, there are several ways to do this. We have documented one way using MobaXterm. Instructions can be found here
2. Uploaded the PUBLIC key to the CCR identity management portal. Instructions can be found here
Once these steps are complete, launch Filezilla and choose Site Manager from the File menu:
Click the "New Site" button to setup a new profile. Under the General tab, change:
Protocol: SFTP - SSH File Transfer Protocol (select from drop down menu)
Hostname: transfer.ccr.buffalo.edu NOTE: we recommend using the transfer server for faster networking; however, you can enter any CCR login server name here
Logon Type: Key file (select from drop down menu)
User: Your CCR Username
Key file: Click browse and navigate to the location of your PRIVATE keyfile ending in .ppk
Click OK to save which will close this dialog box.
Open the Site Manager window again, click on the session you just created and click Connect.
The Site Manager window will close and you'll see the the transfer window. Your local files are on the left and your CCR home directory is on the right.:
To get to your group's project directory, on the right side "Remote Site" change your home directory to your project directory name. For example: /projects/academic/your_group or /projects/industry/your_group
