1 Overview

The primary access to bxp software (bxp) is through the secure HTTPS interface. For file transfers and mass file movement it is possible to SFTP into the bxp servers into your account.


This process is not available by default for all systems and must activated explicitly for your system.


N.B. Deletion of files and folders within bxp is a chargeable support event, so extreme care must be taken when directly accessing data storage within bxp.


2 Remote Access

Retrieving or storing of files remotely can be done a number of ways. SFTP is one of these ways.


This is usually done using a secure FTP client such as FileZilla.
