  41. 41. Basic Computer Network Principles In a networked computing environment, a main computer system, called a SERVER, serves software and files to workstations that are connected to it. These workstations can be your home PC or the PC’s in our labs here on campus and throughout Rutgers.
  42. 42. Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) <ul><li>SFTP -> “Secure File Transfer Protocol”. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the way to securely transfer files over the Internet from one computer to another. For most users, this means transferring files from a local computer to a server and back again. </li></ul><ul><li>Every student is given space on the EDEN Server for file storage. </li></ul><ul><li>File transfer software is installed on the SC&I lab workstations ( see: WinSCP ). </li></ul>
  43. 43. SFTP Practice using WinSCP (PC Only – Mac, next slide) <ul><li>Run WinSCP </li></ul><ul><li>Start a New Session </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Host Name: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User Name and Password: your EDEN net id and pwd </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Port number: 22 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ignore the Private key file field </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Select “SFTP (allow SCP fallback)” Protocol </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Login </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If this box appears, hit “Yes”: </li></ul><ul><li>To Disconnect: Click icon. </li></ul><ul><li>Note: Do NOT remove the Maildir folder! (it holds your EDEN email) </li></ul>
  44. 44. SFTP for Mac Users <ul><li>You’ll need to download and install an SFTP management tool. Some suggestions: Cyberduck and Fugu . </li></ul><ul><li>This example below uses Cyberduck. </li></ul>
  45. 45. Folders in WinSCP <ul><li>You can use SFTP to back up your school work. Your EDEN usage will include data stored here. </li></ul><ul><li>To set up your personal website, create a folder in your WinSCP called [exactly] public_html </li></ul><ul><li>Create a subfolder for 550 (Info Tech) </li></ul><ul><li>In WinSCP, right click on subfolder name, and click on Properties </li></ul><ul><li>Permissions: 777 (full) or 644 (read only) ‏ Note: You must set the permissions to one of the above for others to see the website. </li></ul><ul><li>Test it: netID/ </li></ul>
  46. 46. WinSCP Download (PC only) How to Download WinSCP : Click the pic to get to the University Software Portal; or go to Login using your EDEN netID and password. Type “scp” (no quotes) into the search box and click on link for WinSCP. Follow download instructions.
  47. 47. More New Technology! This may seem overwhelming, but you can do it!! We are going to introduce you to some useful tools for the future. When you need to use them, go to our wiki for detailed instructions and how-to videos. For now, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show…
  48. 48. Social Bookmarking <ul><li>You can collect online resources in one spot for yourself or for group projects. </li></ul><ul><li>You can add notes to your bookmarks to help you remember why you liked them (e.g., good bio; good quote on p. 23). </li></ul><ul><li>You can make your bookmarks private or share them with others. </li></ul><ul><li>Delicious bookmarks are searchable, so they are a great “getting started” resource. You’ll get results that other people have decided were relevant to your search terms! </li></ul>See RU asis&t ’s Delicious bookmarks on our wiki !
  49. 49. Collaborative Docs <ul><li>You can create and share your work online; you can also upload to and from your desktop. </li></ul><ul><li>You control who has access to your document and whether they can edit or just view. </li></ul><ul><li>More than one person can edit the document at one time and changes are tracked so you know who does what. </li></ul><ul><li>Files are stored securely online, and the service is free (you’ll have to register for your free Google account to use). </li></ul><ul><li>Some professors use (click the pic for more info)! </li></ul>See more about Google docs on our wiki !
