UMIACS provides File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Services.

Anonymous FTP

Users have a directory only accessible from supported machines that can be used to make files available to remote users.

  • For UNIX/Linux users, the directory is /fs/ftp/pub
  • For Windows/Mac users, the directory is \\umiacs-webftp.umiacs.umd.edu\ftp-umiacs\pub

All files in the directory are accessible remotely at ftp://ftp.umiacs.umd.edu/pub

Incoming FTP Drop Boxes

Users are also provided with a directory to drop off data remotely. This is done with an FTP drop box, located at ftp://ftp.umiacs.umd.edu/incoming.

Once dropped off via FTP, the files are accessible from any supported host.

  • For UNIX/Linux users, the directory is /fs/ftp/incoming
  • For Windows/Mac users, the directory is \\umiacs-webftp.umiacs.umd.edu\ftp-umiacs\incoming



Please note that all FTP access we provide is anonymous; we do not provide authenticated FTP as it is a insecure protocol. Please look to use SFTP or SCP as alternatives to FTP.
