WinSCP

The guide will show you how to use WinSCP to connect to your slot here at Feral via FTP/SFTP. It shouldn't require any expertise to use, but it might be helpful to read the general FTP/SFTP guide first or if you encounter a more general problem.

Connecting to your slot

First of all you'll need to download and install WinSCP according to its instructions. If you don't already have the software you can find a download link in the External links section at the bottom of this guide.

You'll need the following information to connect:

  • Server/hostname
  • Username
  • Password

You can find each of these by clicking on the Software link of your Feral web manager.

Open up WinSCP and the new connection manager should be open. Put your server/hostname, username and password which we obtained from the slot's Software page. You won't need to add a port number to the hostname, as WinSCP will automatically use the default port. But, if you want to, your two options are 22 or 22222.

Once these details have been entered, you can click on the Save button to save the session for future use (you can also save you password if you wish).

Usage

Once connected you'll see your local directory structure to the left and your slot's folders in the right-hand panel. To download, just select the download location from the left-hand side and drag your folder/files over.
