FTP – FileZilla or WinCP

  • #44071

    How can I upload files to Sandbox 1.3 using FTP clients like FileZilla or WinCP?
    Also, where do I put my jar for MapReduce job and the best place to put my input and output directories.

    Hi Wadwood,

    You can configure SFTP on port 2222 using the root user and password hadoop.
    Input / Output directories are wherever you want to specify them. You will need to put the MR jar where you want to call it from, unless you have not specified absolute paths in your code – then you would need to put it relative to how you have written it.

    Recently I use HDP 2.2 and FileZilla 3.10.3 to establish connection for file transfer. I got “Network Error: Connection Refused” when I enter host: ID: root PW: hadoop Port: 22 or 2222

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Marco,
    What exactly are you trying to do? What virtual machine application are you using?

    I would like to use FileZila to ftp files/directories between local file systems and HDFS. I use it on Cloudera and it’s very easy. However, I can’t connect to HDP. I tried different combination between host (, etc.) and port (22, 2222, etc.). I even installed an configured sftp. It’s not very user friendly. Any suggestions?
