      • host will be sftp://dev4.webenabled.net
  2. USERNAME — w_USER
    • for example: w_marcky is the username for http://marcky.dev4.webenabled.net
  3. PASSWORD — provided to you during site-creation
    • forgot your sftp password? Visit your WebEnabled site's control-panel and click 'Reset Shell Password'.
  4. PORT — leave blank (defaults to 22)

Finally, click 'Quickconnect' to access the remote files using your site's SFTP credentials.
