Secure File Transfer

You can transfer files between computers over the Internet. Even though the word "transfer" is used when discussing this process, a file is actually copied, not moved, to a new location. To do this at NC State you will need to:

  • Use a secure file transfer program (SFTP) and
  • Log in with your Unity ID and password.

Transferring files with a Web browser is not secure and can no longer be done over the NC State campus network.

Internet Connection

You will need a broadband connection. For additional details, see Remote Access to Computing at NC State UniversityThis link will open in a new window.
