Required Settings

Depending on whether you are a member of the Faculty, Staff, or Student, your files will be hosted on one of three servers.

For Faculty:

  • Server: faculty.centre.edu
  • User Name: centre\your.username
  • Password: yourpassword

For Staff:

  • Server: staff.centre.edu
  • User Name: centre\your.username
  • Password: yourpassword

For Students:

  • Server: students.centre.edu
  • User Name: centre\your.username
  • Password: yourpassword

Optional: Setting an initial directory

An initial directory will direct your FTP client in to your user folder as soon as a connection is made. If this is not set, you will need to click through the appropriate folders to find your server space.

  • For Faculty: /faculty/your.username/
  • For Staff: /staff/your.username/
  • For Students: /students/your.username/
