The public directory of the FTP server is accessed via ftp://ftp.hochstaffl.eu. This is a so called anonymous FTP access that is open for everyone, whereas all other types of access to the FTP server require credentials, i.e. username and password, to login.

User FTP Directories

The user directories are also hosted on the ftps://ftp.hochstaffl.eu file server. Domain users can connect to their individual FTP directory via ftps://yourusername@ftp.hochstaffl.eu using either a web-browser or a FTP client program. In order to login to your personal directory the user should be advised to use the secure connection FTPS (FTP over SSL) which provides data-in-motion encryption through SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). Basically the way this works is an FTP client connects over the control/command channel (on port 21), and then the client can negotiate SSL for either the command/control channel or the data channel.

WebDAV Share

Beside the FTP server there is also the possibility to access a Shared WebDAV directory where users can upload and download files that are accessible to other domain users (shared). The shared WebDAV directory is accessed via https://remote.hochstaffl.eu/Webdav using a WebDAV client and your login credentials.
