How to Access an External FTP Server from the MPIA Science Network

Because of the security measures in place on the MPIA internal wired (i.e., “Science”) network, accessing an external FTP server requires following a special procedure.

From the command line:

ftp ftp-proxy.mpia-hd.mpg.de
username: anonymous@ftp.server.address
password: your e-mail address


OR

ftp ftp-proxy.mpia-hd.mpg.de
username: username@ftp.server.address
password: password for username on external server


Within an application (e.g., Filezilla, CyberDuck, etc):

Ensure that the proxy settings for the application include:

Proxy Name = ftp-proxy.mpia-hd.mpg.de
Port = 21
Passive Mode = YES
