DLI mirror site


I have been trying to access the Canadian Alcohol and Drug Use Monitoring Survey 2008 on the DLI mirror site at UAlberta and cannot seem to connect; I am using Filezilla.

Any suggestions on what to do next?


Filezilla and Winscp can both be used to download from stcftp and the DLI mirror site at UAlberta, however I have heard that Winscp is easier to configure for sftp.

One other thing I should mention about Filezilla, if there are French accents in the path or filename sometimes Filezilla will produce the following error message:

no such file or directory
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

To fix this problem, please try the following in Filezilla:

Under File ---> Site Manager --> Charset

click on "use custom charset" and enter: iso8859-1

I hope this helps.
