For security reasons we no longer offer any FTP servers (although the client
ftp command, to connect to other FTP servers, is still available).
To access your own files from outside, you should use a secure file transfer system such as SCP or SFTP. If you need SFTP software for Windows or Mac, see our SSH software page.
To share files with others, HTTP (web) access is the simplest method. Further instructions are given in the web support pages on using http to replace ftp for file transfers.
If you are trying to connect to FTP servers outside Tate Lab and encounter problems, you may want to try using our FTP proxy.
