You can easily connect to our server via sftp (ssh). Please use a suitable client like FileZilla (Windows, Linux, Mac), Cyberduck (Windows, Mac) or Transmit (Mac).

Please use the following connection settings:

  • Host: * [vweb10.gwdg.de, vweb12.gwdg.de, vweb14.gwdg.de, vweb.gwdg.de, vwebfile.gwdg.de]
  • Port: 2222

* If you don't know, which host you should choose, please have a look at your notification email. In most cases you could also use your domain name of your website.

After a successful login the content of your home-directory is listed in your client. Please change directory to www/your-vweb/ to edit files, which are delivered by the webserver.
