Web Server Requires Users to Switch to SFTP

As part of our web server upgrade, plain FTP service will be disabled on the UMD web server on Feb 6, 2012. After that date, you will need to use secure FTP (SFTP) to upload files to our web server.

You can begin using SFTP at any time, and ITSS strongly encourages you to make the change now. We have provided details on SFTP settings within Filezilla and Dreamweaver on our web site at: Secure FTP Settings.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the ITSS Help Desk (, 726-8847).
