FTP Instructions for Private Archive

For security reasons, the FTP server uses TLS/SSL for encryption. FileZilla is one of many FTP clients that supports this protocol and it is available for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux. If using FileZilla, please configure the server type settings for FTPES (FTP over explicit TLS/SSL) in the Site Manager's "General" tab. Below is a screenshot that illustrates how to configure FileZilla properly. It is also available in the Basecamp collaboration site's "FTP Archive Access" project with instructions for other graphical and command line clients.

CURL

For downloading and uploading files, one can use the "curl" command like so:

Downloading:

$ curl -k --user username:password --ftp-ssl ftp://ftp.hmpdacc.org/example_file.txt > /local/path/to/example_file.txt

Uploading:

$ curl -k --user username:password --ftp-ssl --upload-file /local/path/to/example.txt ftp://ftp.hmpdacc.org/example.txt

LFTP

For those who like to use lftp, if you turn off FEAT negotiation in lftp, it can access the FTP server as well. Here's how:

$ lftp -e "set use-feat off" username@ftp.hmpdacc.org

For greater convenience, users can put the "set use-feat off" in a ~/.lftprc file so that they don't need to specify it each time.
