Using SFTP Client
You can download/upload files, directories from/to your web folder in Unix Home directory with SFTP (Secure FTP) method. To do this, you have to download a SFTP client.

In the Hostname field, you may use any linux machine (remote1 through remote6), but you MUST use them along with their domain name. For example: remote1.ccse.kfupm.edu.sa. Choose port 22 in Port Number field. Enter your CCSE Unix username and password in the corresponding fields and click on Login button. Once you are logged in, you get your local drives in one frame and your Unix Home Directory in the other. You can drag and drop files/directories between these frames to transfer them.
Now you can drag and drop local site files to public_html directory. The first page should be named as index.html. You can view your home page by typing http://www.ccse.kfupm.edu.sa/username, in your favorite browser.
Using MS Publisher
