Setting up Cyberduck

Setting up a new connection

  • Download, install and run Cyberduck on your computer
  • From the Bookmarks menu, select 'New Bookmark'
  • Select SFTP as the protocol, as the hostname, your zID as the username and your zPass as the password
  • Close the New Bookmark window, and click the newly-created bookmark to connect
  • A file browser will appear - you can drag files into and out of it, just like Windows Explorer or the Finder on OSX.

Useful tweaks

By default, the app pops up a couple of windows when transferring files, which can look a bit cluttered.

To prevent this:

  • Go to Edit -> Preferences | Transfers
  • Select Use Browser Connection and uncheck Bring window to front when transfer starts
