A new window will appear in which you must enter the host name and your
username. The hostname for the ftp server at the iSchool is ftp.ischool.utexas.edu.

a few moments (depending on your connection speed) you should be logged
in to the ftp server and you're now ready to move files back and forth.
*Please note that usernames and passwords for iSchool user accounts

at UT. Also note that if you forget your password, it will take us at
least two days to reset it. You must come into the iSchool IT Lab in
person and fill out a "Password Reset Form"
