Dreamweaver Tutorial

You may use Adobe Dreamweaver to create, manage, and upload your Web pages. You must enter the Host (www.people.vcu.edu) and the Host Directory (public_html/) in the SFTP section of the Remote Info section of the Edit option. You must also ensure that you connect using SFTP, using port 22. This allows you to "Get Files" and "Put Files" on the server.

Note*: You must be connected via VPN or to the VCU network to connect to a VCU web server via SFTP.
