Overview

The following tutorial will take you through the process of logging into the Large File Transfer service.

Please Note: If you try to login with a non-CU email address, and you do not already have a recipient account in the Large File Transfer service, you will be denied login. Only CU Boulder campus faculty, staff and student employees are pre-registered with LFT accounts.

Step

Go to https://filetransfer.colorado.edu. In the login window, enter your email address, then click Next.

Step

If you entered an email address ending in colorado.edu, a web browser window will appear prompting you for your Federated Identity Service credentials. Enter your identikey and associated password, then click Continue. You should now be logged into your Inbox.

Step

Alternatively, if you entered an email address that does not end in colorado.edu, you will be prompted for your Large File Transfer account password on the same screen. Enter the password you chose when creating this account, then click Sign In. If you entered your credentials correctly and you are registered with an account, the Large File Transfer webpage will appear. You should now be logged into your Inbox.
