# FileZilla

• FileZilla allows you to access our file servers from your personal computer.
• Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

<note> This should generally only be used to access small files stored within home directories.

Do not use for large size file transfers! </note>

## Setup

• After installing you should see something like the following:

• The host is the server/computer you are trying to connect to, we suggest ssh.physics.umn.edu for light-duty use
• Port 22 is the standard ssh port (use Port 22)
• You will probably get a pop-up complaining that your computer doesn't know the computer you are connecting to - make sure the Host name is typed in correctly and hit okay.

• You should now be connected and able to browse your home directory, download files, etc. Hooray!
