Campus firewalls limit off-campus access to Hunter College servers
via Netscape Composer and FTP, so one method of tunneling through
the firewall is to use UltraEdit.
The following describes how you can update your web pages using
UltraEdit. We assume here that you use a PC with some version of
Microsoft Windows and that you already know how to get around in
The latest version of UltraEdit is 10a. It is an extremely useful
text/hex editor that now supports SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)
so that you once again can open any file
residing on a Hunter server (provided you have an account on this
of course) directly in the editor, modify the file, and send it
back up to
the server just by clicking one (save) button.
You can download a fully functional evaluation copy for free and
for 45 days from http://www.ultraedit.com .
If it meets your needs, a new registration costs $35; if you have
registered older version, the upgrade is only $17.50.
Note that UltraEdit does not require the installation of SSH on
your home computer.
(Our thanks to Devra Golbe and Manfred Kuechler for alerting us
to this option.)
