Uploading to course accounts

Accessing course account files remotely

If you administer a course, you should have access to the corresponding course account.

When working remotely, it's straightforward to get access to the files in the course account homedir:

  • If you haven't already, create an SSH key in your own account
  • Download your key (and convert it if necessary)
  • Now create a new bookmark in Cyberduck, using the course account as the username - for instance cs1234 for COMP1234
  • In the SSH Private Key section, press the 'Choose' button to select the keyfile you just saved.

The new bookmark will now connect directly to the course account - when prompted to authenticate, use the passphrase that you set for your private key.
