Network Folders :: SFTP Connection Guide

Printer-friendly version

Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a process that enables you to transfer files between computers securely. SFTP is Humbold State University's preferred method for transferring files to your Network Folder, as it ensures that all file transfers meet the University's data protection compliance requirements. If you need to access folders other than your Network Folder remotely, please talk to your ITC about appropriate alternatives.

Depending on which operating system you use, you may need to install special SFTP software. Click the appropriate link under Connection Instructions below to determine the requirements for your system.

Note: Command line (terminal or SSH) access is not permitted for file transfers to Network Folders.

Connection Instructions

Connect to with your SFTP client of choice using your HSU User Name and Password.
