Publishing Web Pages to MyWebSpace using FTP for Macintosh Users

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a way for files to be sent to and from servers. Macintosh users must use FTP in order to publish their web pages to the MyWebSpace web server. Quinnipiac University has made available the full version of the popular Mac FTP software, Fetch, to the Quinnipiac Mac community.

FTP Software

If you have FTP software already installed, you may configure it using these settings:

  • Server: mywebspace.quinnipiac.edu
  • Login: in the form of quinnipiac\yourQUlogin (where yourQUlogin is your Quinnipiac network login name). For example, if your login is XYSmith, your login would be, quinnipiac\XYSmith
  • Password: your Quinnipiac network password
  • Path or Host Directory: leave blank
