Aeries Software has a Secure FTP server to protect your data during transfers. SFTP requires a dedicated client for transferring files to our network; connecting with a web browser or other platforms will not work. If you need a free FTP client, we suggest FileZilla. The credentials for logging in are as follows:

Host name:

User name: aeriesuploads

Password: 888Aerieshelp

Port: 22   (it defaults if not specified)

NOTE: You will not see your file listed once uploaded as the list permission is not available to that account. In the event your file cannot be uploaded again because one with the same name is in the way, simply change the name slightly.
