The department provides a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server,
sftp.cs.virginia.edu, to which you can connect and securely transfer files to and from your departmental directories. The name
sftp is an alias to
portal01.cs.virginia.edu. Since this system is part of the portal cluster, direct access to it is allowed by the department firewall.
If you are using an application like
fileZilla to transfer files, specify
sftp.cs.virginia.edu as the destination server, not portal.
