FTP WebDAV files to your SFU filespace
Below are instructions on setting up Cyberduck to
FTP WebDAV files to your SFU filespace. We are not using Filezilla as changes to the SFU FTP WebDAV service mean we will be unable to use Filezilla for now.
Due to recent SFU access restrictions. This webspace is only available to students of IAT-339 or IAT-235. Students in IAT-235 should email Andrew to request access.
Download and install Cyberduck.
Library laptops and campus computers will already have Cyberduck installed.
Find your webspace
Before setting up the connection, you will need to find which webspace is 'yours' — head to https://www.sfu.ca/siat/student_projects/iat339_2023_fall/ (for Fall 2023 IAT-339 D100) to see the listing. There should be a folder that contains the first bit of your SFU computing ID.
If you are unsure which one is yours, please email Andrew to confirm. Once you have found the folder, copy the name of the folder for use in Cyberduck.
Create a new bookmark
- Protocol: The protocol should be set to WebDAV (HTTPS).
- Nickname: Give the bookmark a nickname meaningful to you.
- Server: Should read webdav.its.sfu.ca
- Username: This will be your computing ID.
- Password: This will be your computing password.
- Path: This should start with /web/siat-students/site/ — see below for the rest.
Once you have set the above, you will also need to specify the path that you will be working with. For this, you will need the address you copied earlier. Select the 'More Options' dropdown to set the path.
Once done applying all those settings, close the bookmark setup window.
Open the new bookmark and connect
Try uploading a file
Once connected, you will see two files that are titled 'DONT_DELETE_ACCESS.txt' and 'DONT_DELETE_USERS.txt'. If you delete these files you will no longer be able to access the filespace.
From here you can drag-and-drop files into the interface or select the 'Upload' option from the top menu in Cyberduck to upload files.
Refresh your webpage
Refreshing your webpage at https://www.sfu.ca/siat/student_projects/... should now show the uploaded file.
I am still having trouble
Please email Andrew if you are still having trouble with uploading files.
