Terminal, depending on your operating system. Download FileZilla to transfer files between your machine and the server. Use the following connection information when prompted: •Hostname:unixlab.sfsu.edu•Username: your SF State e-mail account name(e.g., Students: janedoe for account [email protected]•Password:your SF State password•Port: 22*Five incorrect login attempts will result in a locked account.

2.Transferring files using FileZilla FileZilla allows you to transfer files between your local computer and the unixlab server. Once connected to Unixlab, you can see your local machine on the left side and the folder with your unixlab account on the right side. Simply drag and drop to transfer files form one folder to another. 3.Using Oracle on the unixlab server 1.Log on to the server (unixlab.sfsu.edu) using your e-mail account name and SF State password. For more information view the access instructions. 2.At the [unixlab]prompt, type: source /usr/bin/oracle_profile (there is a space between source and /) (You need to do this every time you login to use Oracle. Or, you can edit your .bash_profilefile and add this source statement so you don't have to run this script for every Oracle session. Edit the file using a text editor--emacs or nano (pico-like).) 3.Start a sqlplus session by typing: sqlplus /(there is a space before /)after the[unixlab]prompt. Oracle uses your server account credentials so you don't need to type in your account name and password. At this point, you should have a window similar to this one : 4.You can get out of your sqlplus session by typing: exit
