Using a Linux Shell and SSH/SFTP to Access organization.rice.edu

Using SSH to access organization.rice.edu

Using a Linux Shell and SSH/SFTP

ssh username@organization.rice.edu

To upload and download files from organization.rice.edu, use the following SFTP command

sftp username@organization.rice.edu
put local_file_to_server.txt
get remote_file_from_server.txt

Begin an SSH session
  • Enter the SSH command shown above. Entering this command will show a confirmation for the server's fingerprint. Type "yes" * to continue.


  • Next enter your password. (Note: it will appear as if nothing is happening as you type your password, this is normal.)


  • Once you are into the system, you will be at your home directory, where you can manipulate files and folders.


  • To exit, type "exit" * and press enter.

Using SFTP to Upload and Download Files/Folders
  • Open another terminal or Linux shell and change directories to your local directory.


  • Use the SFTP command listed above to gain access to organization.rice.edu, then type in your password


  • Now you can use the PUT and GET commands to upload and download files/folders to organization.rice.edu respectively. In this example, I uploaded a generic text file called "test_file" and I downloaded the current contents of my public_html folder to my local directory. To exit the session, once again, type "exit" *.
