To create a new faculty website, please use NUSites.
Connect to the Weinberg Faculty Server
Non-NUSites users connect to the Weinberg Faculty Server through a SFTP client or web publishing tool with SFTP capabilities (e.g., Adobe Contribute or Dreamweaver and many others).
Most clients have a way to define a site or connection where you'll be asked questions similar to this:
- Transfer method: SFTP
- Host: faculty.wcas.northwestern.edu
- Username: Your NetID
- Password: Your NetID password
- Directory: public_html
Your files will be viewable on the web at http://faculty.wcas.northwestern.edu/~NetID. Until you upload your page, you will receive a forbidden error when viewing the URL in a browser.
If your application doesn't ask for an initial directory, upload documents to the "public_html" directory.
These instructions will help you get connected with your specific client:
- Contribute (recommended for most users)
- Dreamweaver MX 2004 or 8+
- Secure File Transfer Client (Windows PC)
- Fetch (Macintosh OS X)
AbsoluteFTP does not support Secure FTP without an additional plug-in.
