You can access ESF's secure FTP server from anywhere on campus. If you are using an ESF computer in one of the labs on campus you can simply access the FTP server as if it where a drive on your computer. 

    Go to My Computer and click on the drive labelled as \\esf-sfs\department (Z:)
    Enter your NetID username and password

Through wireless laptops on the EvergreenX you can access the FTP server through typing the address in your file broswer.

    Go to your file browser and type into the address field: \\esf-sfs\department\
    Enter your SU NetID username and password
