Installation

  1. Install the latest version of Fetch.

    Note: Fetch is not a free FTP client.
  2. Once you open Fetch, you'll be asked to set up a new connection with the following information:

    Host Name: ftp-[your egnyte domain].egnyte.com. 
    Example: ftp-acme.egnyte.com

    User Name: [your user name] $ [your egnyte domain].
    Example: jsmith$acme

    Connect using: FTP with TLS/SSL (for FTP or FTPES connections) or SFTP.

    Password: Your Egnyte password.
    Note: SSO authenticated users will have to set a “Non-SSO” password that is only used for FTP. This can be done from the My Preferences tab under My Profile in the Egnyte Web UI.

  3. Click Connect.
  4. Navigate to Preferences, select the Upload tab, and choose Binary (Raw Data) from the Default upload format drop-down.
