You can move your files to and from the Midd-Unix cluster using your favorite FTP client.


Your Midd-Unix space has three folders setup for you by default: private, public, and public_html. Permissions allow only you to access files in your private folder, while anyone can read (but not make changes) to files in your public and public_html folders. The public_html is a special folder you can create a web page.


These instructions are very general in an attempt to accommodate various FTP clients.

  1. Launch your FTP application.
  2. Connect to the host ftp.middlebury.edu
    • With an text-based FTP client, the command probably is ftp ftp.middlebury.edu/user=your-username/pass=your-password/binary.
    • Use your Middlebury username and password.
    • If your FTP client has a field for Directory or Folder leave it blank to force FTP to use your folder on Midd-Unix.
    • Specify auto,auto detect or binary for the file transfer mode.
  3. After the connection is made, navigate to the folder from or to which you want to copy files.
    • With text-based FTP client, use the command cd foldername (type dir to view the folder contents).
    • With a window based FTP client, select your location by clicking upon the folder icons to move around.
  4. To copy files from your computer to Midd-Unix.
    • With text-based FTP client use the command put filename for individual files, or mput *.* to copy all files.
    • With a window-based FTP client, select files and click the transfer arrow to copy the file(s).
  5. To copy files from Midd-Unix to your computer.
    • With a text based FTP, use the command get filename for individual files, mget *.* to copy all files.
    • With a window based FTP, select files by clicking on them and click the arrow to copy the file(s).
  6. Close the connection to Midd-Unix.
    • With text-based FTP client, type exit.
    • With a window-based FTP client, click on Close or Close Connection.
