Using FileZilla for SFTP


Regrid most commonly delivers data as a pull process using SFTP (SecureFTP). FileZilla is a common cross-platform file transfer client that supports SFTP, but any transfer software that supports SFTP will work and is generally configured with the same settings as described below.


  1. Download and install FileZilla if you haven't already. You can download it from the official website.

  2. Open FileZilla and go to File -> Site Manager.


  1. Click on the New Site button and enter a name for the site (e.g. "").

  2. In the Protocol dropdown menu on the right, select SFTP - SSH File Transfer Protocol.

  3. In the Host field, enter

  4. In the Port field, enter 22 (which is the default port for SFTP).

  5. In the Logon Type dropdown menu, select Normal.

  6. Enter your username and password for the SFTP server Regrid provided in the User and Password fields.

  7. Click Connect to connect to the SFTP server.

  8. If everything is set up correctly, you should be able to see the files on the remote server in the right-hand pane of FileZilla. You can navigate through the directories and drag-and-drop files to transfer them between your local machine and the remote server.
