Problem: I am trying to ftp to but when I give my password I get "login incorrect". I made several attempts. My password got me logged in so why can't I ftp?

Solution: You should ftp into one of the following hosts

The host names "" and "" are used for e-mail, but not for ftp.

If you are doing this from a Windows machine, the best way to do this is to:

  • Open up an MS-DOS Command Prompt.
  • Change to the directory that you want to transfer a file to/from
  • Type the following:
    • ftp
      • This should bring up a window asking you for a Username and password.
      • You will need to put in your UNITY username and password there.
      • From that point, just change your directories to where the file(s) are located.
      • To get a copy of the file, type "get filename".
      • To upload something type "put filename" Where "filename" represents the name of the file.
  • If you are on a Macintosh, you will need to use a program called Fetch. If you have any questions, please call the NCSU Computing Services Help Desk at 919-515-HELP, or email us at
