Note: For students working on the NSU campus. After a cybersecurity attack in the spring of 2023, the main NSU network ( disabled FTP (File Transfer Protocol) support to help ensure that vital student data is not compromised. Hence, to FTP files today, you will now need to connect to the "NSU-Personal" network as shown below. Personally, to connect to this network, I needed to take my computer to the Webb Building. The unique MAC address associated with my computer was then added to the database allowing me access to this network.

For students uploading to the instructor's website (, the "User" would be your NSU username concatenated with "" and your "Password" would be your firstname - as listed in NSU Blackboard.
  Password: firstname

Passwords must be at least 5 characters long. Consequently, for first names less than 5 characters, I have added numbers starting with "1". Hence if your first name is "Josh", your password would be "josh1". If your first name is "Joe", your password would be "joe12", and so on. As a complete example, if your NSU username is "smith123" and your first name is "Tyler" you would enter the following information:

  Password: tyler

Step #3: Search for the file that you want to upload in the left side of the application.

Step #4: "RIGHT" click on the file that you want to transfer and select "Upload".

Step #5: Confirm that you have successfully uploaded your content by viewing it online.

Note: For security purposes, most web servers do not display a directory listing of all files in a folder. To allow a directory listing, a file called ".htaccess" containing the text "Options +Indexes" is placed in the folder.
