Fugu SFTP is designed so you can quickly connect to a remote server by entering the name of the server or its Internet address in the Hostname field on the Fugu Open Connection window. The Open Connection window displays two subwindows: your local drive and the remote FTP directory that you entered. Files and directories can be dragged from one subwindow and dropped on a target directory in the other subwindow. As you drop the contents from one location to the other, the standard FTP transfer operation is performed.
Follow these steps to use Fugu SFTP on a Mac OS X machine.

Complete the fields as follows and then click Connect. Connect to: Enter the name of the remote server you want to access. Username: Enter your Andrew user ID.

A password prompt is displayed on the window. Enter your Andrew password and click Authenticate.
The SFTP window is displayed with the local and remote host directories displayed. Select the file(s) to be transferred by clicking and dragging each one to the new location. Note: As the transfer is being completed a message is briefly displayed following the uploading or downloading in progress.
