UMIACS provides these File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Services:
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 which can be used 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
