Using Dedicated File Transfer Software

This page provides information on using dedicated file transfer software to securely connect to UT Arlington network servers.

Available To:

  • Faculty (currently appointed) and Staff
  • Departments and Offices at UT Arlington
  • Students Admitted to UT Arlington

How to Get:

There are a large number of file transfer programs available. Most of them will allow you to connect to and use your networked file storage. The links below provide basic usage information for a few of the programs:

How to Use:

Before attempting to use the software, find out what server or host to which you need to connect:

  • J Drive:, K Drive:
    These are departmental servers upon which faculty and staff personal (J: drive) or departmental (K: drive) folders are located. You can connect to these servers using FTP. (Note: FTP is not secure) Look up your server here if you do not know what it is.
  • J Drive:,, Class Folder:
    This would be the server name needed to connect to student J: drives, web, and class folders using FTP. (Note: FTP is not secure)
    This would be the server name if you are trying to view and transfer files to/from your Unix account using SFTP.

Known Issues:

You will not be able to use FTP software from home or off-campus unless you establish a VPN connection to UT Arlington first.
