Mac OS X Instructions

These instructions will guide you through installing, configuring, and using the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) client on your Macintosh using OS X.

1. The first step is to download the client setup program to your Macintosh. It can be found at http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/fugu/download.html. Once you are at the site, click on the Fugu English.dmg to download.




2. It is recommended that you save the installer to a location where you will be able to easily find it, such as the desktop. After it has finished downloading, it will appear on the desktop.




3. Once it has finished downloading, double click on your hard drive, which usually goes by the name of Macintosh HD or Startup Disk. Then, drag the Fugu icon on the desktop to your Applications folder.




4. At this point, you want to drag the Fugu icon from the Applications folder onto your dock. This will give you an easy to access shortcut that is readily available.
