If you have a university owned computer that is on campus, install Cyberduck from Applications/Self Service.
If you have a personally owned Macintosh or a university owned Mac that is off-campus, use these instructions.
- Download Cyberduck from this link
- Double click the zip file.
- A Cyberduck icon will be placed on your desktop.
- Drag the icon to your Applications folder.
- Open your Applications folder and double click the Cyberduck icon.
- Click Open when OS X warns you that this application was downloaded from the internet.
- Be greeted by the main Cyberduck screen. Remove any existing bookmarks by clicking on them, and then clicking the minus sign.
- Create a new Bookmark by clicking the plus sign.
- In the window that pops up, set the following settings:
- SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)
- Nickname: Bucknell Netspace
- Server: ftp.netspace.bucknell.edu
- Port should be 22 (and should be automatically selected when you use SFTP)
- Username: your Bucknell username
You have now set up Cyberduck. Close the window by clicking the button in the upper left corner. In order to use it:
- Double click the Bookmark that you have created.
- You will get a warning about ‘Unknown host key for ftp.netspace.bucknell.edu.’ Check the Always box and click Allow.
- You will be prompted for your Bucknell username & password. Enter them, click Login. If you will be doing this frequently, leave ‘Add to keychain’ checked so that it will not prompt you for user/pass each time.
- When you have logged in, you will see a list of available folders in Netspace. From here, you can drag items into folders, or out onto your desktop.
- Upon closing, Cyberduck may ask for a donation. This is not required, and you may legally use the software without doing so.
