How to install and access Tux via Cyberduck
- NOTE: For TUX access, current Tux users would probably use their Drexel email@example.com , and not just their Drexel username. For example, if your Drexel userid was mjg88, you would use firstname.lastname@example.org , and not just mjg88. But if you run into issues, then try using only the Drexel username (so only mjg88 in this example).
- Download and install Cyberduck at https://cyberduck.io
- Open up the Cyberduck application
- Click the "Open Connection" button in the top-left corner
- Type in tux.cs.drexel.edu for server address
- Select the SFTP protocol in the dropdown
- Enter your Drexel username and password.
For TUX access,
Current Tux users would probably use their Drexel email@example.com ,
and not just their Drexel username.
So in the screenshot below, the "Username" filed would say...
and not just...
But if you run into issues,
then try using only the Drexel username (so only mjg88 in example below).
- You now have access to your Tux via CyberDuck GUI
- From here, you can do actions like drag-and-drop onto your local desktop
- Be careful dragging files to locations that have a file with the same name. Determine if you want to overwrite the file.
- You can drag-and-drop from your local desktop to a directory on Tux as well
- When you delete files on Tux, it is only removed from the Tux directory. Your local copy is still preserved.
- Files can be edited right out of Tux. Right-click the file > Edit With > Select BBEdit
- If you want to set the default editor to BBEdit. In the top-left corner, go to Cyberduck > Preferences... > In the pop-up, select Editor tab > Select dropdown and change to BBEdit.
