Fugu SFTP is a secure file transfer program for Mac OS X 10.6. It is used to transfer files from your local machine to a remote machine or server and securely transfers FTP protocol connections. Its graphic interface allows drag-and-drop functionality for copying files from one drive to another, control-clicking on an item to generate a menu of options, and clicking on a selected item to edit the item’s label.
Note: This application is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.7+. Please use Fetch for SFTP file transfer.
Note: The sftp protocol makes a terminal connection to the remote server to perform the file transfer. Therefore, any unexpected output from your default shell or login scripts may cause sftp to exit with errors. If you experience trouble connecting with sftp, examine your .login and/or .cshrc files, or send an email to email@example.com including the error messages you received and the contents of your .login and .cshrc files.
SFTP will work to any standard Andrew UNIX host, including the unix.andrew pool of machines. However, some other machines, (such as publishing.andrew.cmu.edu used for publishing web collections to www.cmu.edu) do not have SFTP enabled at this time.
Note: Computing Services does not support tunneled connections through SSH Secure Shell.
Before you begin
If you do not have the Fugu SFTP client for Mac, you can download a copy from the Computing Services Software page. Follow the instructions provided to download and install SSH for your operating system.
Note: If you are installing Fugu onto a new machine, you may be prompted with a dialog box stating, "To open Fugu, you need to install Rosetta." Rosetta is a translation software allowing PowerMac software to run on Intel Macs and is an optional install for 10.6. Clicking Install will install Rosetta and allow the Fugu installation to continue.
