PLEASE NOTE: Effective July 30, 2015, users accessing this service from off campus must use the Campus VPN service.
This service is for transferring files to your AFS home space using an SFTP program such as sftp (for Linux), Fetch (for the Macintosh), or SSH/SFTP Secure Shell (for a Windows-based PC). Access to this service is available to anyone who has subscribed to AFS from Onyen Services.
From a terminal window, enter:
% sftp sftp.its.unc.edu
<onyen>@sftp.its.unc.edu’s password: <enter your onyen password>
In addition to using sftp (above), Macs can use the Fetch program. The program is available as a free download to UNC faculty, staff, and students at the UNC Shareware site. Download and install Fetch. Then open the program which will take you to a New Connection window.
In the New Connection window you will need to supply four pieces of information.
1. Hostname: sftp.its.unc.edu
2. Username: <enter your onyen>
3. Connect Using: SFTP
4. Password: <enter your onyen password>
SSH/SFTP Secure Shell is a Windows application that supports SFTP access via the sftp server, isis.unc.edu. The program is available as a free download to UNC faculty, staff, and students at the UNC Shareware site. Installing the application on your computer will install two icons to your desktop, SSH Secure Shell client and SSH Secure File Transfer client. The SSH Secure File Transfer client is used for uploading files to AFS space or your H-drive. Once you have downloaded and installed SSH/SFTP Secure Shell you can double click the SSH Secure File Transfer client icon on your desktop to open the default SSH Secure File Transfer window.
