Transferring Files to/from the Student Environment

To transfer files from the student environment to your personal device you need to download either WinSCP (for Windows) or Cyberduck (for Windows or Mac).

Settings for WinSCP:
  • File protocol: SFTP
  • Host name: linux.student.cs.uwaterloo.ca
  • Port number: 22
  • Username and password: (your cs.student credentials)
Settings for Cyberduck:
  • Top option bar: SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)
  • Server: linux.student.cs.uwaterloo.ca
  • Port: 22
  • Username and password: (your cs.student credentials)
  • Once connected you can go to Action and click New Bookmark. The next time you open Cyberduck your bookmarks should appear, simply click on linux.student.cs.uwaterloo.ca-SFTP to connect.

Both applications can also be used to transfer files from your personal device to the student environment.
