File Management

Transporting files from the server to your local computer

Web Interface

Go to https://bombay.pstat.ucsb.edu/ and input your user name and password for the mail server. Once you logged in, click on “Others”, and then “File Manager”. You will be presented with another authentication request; put in your username and password for your home share account assigned to you by PSTAT when your tenor started. Use the tools on the bottom of the page to upload files. To download existing files, click the download icon () located to the right of the desired file.

Secure FTP

If your local computer is a UNIX machine:
Use the command sftp username@kingslanding.pstat.ucsb.edu to login our server and use get or put to transport a single file and mget or mput to transport multiple files. Type “quit” to exit sftp. For further sftp commands, type help when you are in sftp.

If your local computer is a Windows machine:
Download a FREE sftp client called WinSCP here. Again, the hostname to connect to is kant.pstat.ucsb.edu.

For more information on WinSCP, look to their website.

Server Mounted Drive

On most department PCs, your home directory will be mounted to the H: drive (and mapped to My Documents) if you log into the initial “Home Directory” prompt. If not, you can go to Start button-> Startup -> “Home Directory” to login and create that link to your documents on H:. Don't forget to log out of the machine to close this connection to your files.
