Core FTP Lite

I am currently using Core FTP Lite from Core FTP which is free as in beer but not free as in speech. The good thing is that it supports all of the above mentioned methods to transfer files from/to hornet.mur.at.

Instructions for Core FTP Lite

Here is a step by step recipy how to set up a connection to ftp.mur.at using Core FTP Lite. The things described here have been tested using Version 1.3b of Core FTP Lite.

  1. Start Core FTP Lite
  2. Click on Sites and then on Site Manager. The following dialog will pop up:
Core FTP Site Manager Dialog
  1. Fill in all the fields as shown above
Site Name is just a name for you to remeber the connection
Host / IP / URL is for the address of the machine to connect to
Username is the name you got from the NOC
Password you also got from the NOC
PASV can be unchecked
SSH/SFTP is the method I use and suggest
Use Proxy I have never tried since I don't have a proxy anywhere
  1. If you want to jump right to the folder where your homepage lives, click on Advanced in the dialog above and the following will pop up:
Core FTP Advanced settings

Remote Start Folder is the folder where your homepage data sits on the server
Local Start Folder is the folder where the local copy of your homepage sits
Feel free to check some more advanced settings. I did not need them up to now.
  1. Click OK in the Advanced Site Settings dialog and then try Connect in the Site Manager dialog shown above where you entered the other data before.
  2. If this is the first time you use Core FTP for ftp.mur.at yout will get this notification about the host key sent by ftp.mur.at.
