Web Pages and File Space

Your TigerTracks login is used to access your Scatcat file space and publish student web pages.

For information about using your FHSU student e-mail account, see Learn to Use FHSU Mail.

FHSU uses a Google Apps (Gmail) Platform. Don't know what Google Apps are? We have a FAQ section for them too!

Scatcat File Space Limitations

A 500 MiB "Data" Quota applies to the total amount of file space residing on the server for an actively enrolled student's account. This includes all Web pages and any other personal files (including the H: drive / My Documents folder).

A Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) program, such as FileZilla Client can be used to delete files from your account.

If there is a course-related reason requiring you to have additional space, please have your instructor send an e-mail explaining your needs to us at helpdesk@fhsu.edu.

Transferring Files Using Scatcat

While any SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) program may be used to transfer your files, FileZilla Client is available as freeware and is supported by the CTC HelpDesk.  Versions are available for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems.   The Scatcat server does not allow the use of non-secure FTP applications.

Accessing Your Scatcat "My Documents" Folder (H: drive)

When you save files to the “My Documents” folder on a computer in a Fort Hays State University on-campus computer lab that uses the TigerTracks login, the files are saved in your Scatcat account.

Your Scatcat “My Documents” folder can also be accessed from other computers by using Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) programs, such as FileZilla Client.
