Add, edit or delete files in UBfs from off campus by creating a
Web folder using your Macintosh computer.
Your Mac must be running OS 10.4 or higher. Authentication to UBfs is done with your UBITName and password or a departmental account (ITorg account) and password.
Create a web folder that links you to the top of the UBfs filesystem:
Browse to https://ubfs-mac.buffalo.edu and log in with your UBITName and password to modify permissions of files and directories.
You can upload and download files with an sftp client, such as Fetch or Cyberduck.
You can also securely transfer files with sftp, which is native to Mac OS X.
If a computer does not allow for sftp connections, ftp can be used instead. This is not recommended, however, as the connection willl not be secure.
To change directories on your Mac, at the sftp prompt enter lcd followed by the directory path of where the files are located.
To change directories on the computer to which you have established an sftp connection, at the sftp prompt enter cd followed by the directory path of where the files are located.
To download a file to your Mac, enter the command get followed by the name of the file you want downloaded to your Mac.
To upload a file, enter the command put followed by the name of the file you want uploaded to the remote computer.
