File Transfer System

Information

WWP&S utilizes File Catapult for secure, fast and direct file transfers. Communication is protected by SSL encryption and transfers are point to point. Data transfer is quick and secure. Large transfers are approved.

Install Catapult App

To begin using the transfer system, you will first need to download the Catapult Application. Using one of the options below, download, unzip and install the application on your computer.

Connection Settings

To use Catapult, please contact your project manager for account setup. Once completed, you will receive a welcome document with connection settings which include username and password. If you’ve already received this letter and have questions, please send an email to Asset Ops with inquiries.

Transfer System Notes

The Catapult application is installed on your computer and will need to be used to transfer data to and from WWP&S. The application is easy to use. Clients are presented with two window panes, the left pane is provided as a file browser to your local machine (computer). The right pane, once logged in, represents WWP&S servers. Uploading or downloading is as simple as selecting files, then by using the large Left or Right arrow buttons in the middle of the application, you’re able to move data in that direction.

Logging in is accomplished by selecting the ‘+’ icon in the upper right of the application window. Once selected, a dialog box will pop up requesting server address, username and password. These are provided by your project manager.

If you are installing Catapult on a Mac, you may be presented with a dialog box requesting security approval on your machine. If this option presents itself, visit your System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General (tab). The lower right of this window will often present an option to ‘allow’ the installation of Catapult. Users should only have to manage this once.

If you are using Catapult on a PC, we’ve found that some extra settings are needed to facilitate high speed transfers. When you are logging into the application itself, a dialog box will appear requesting server, username and password. Below those boxes is an option titled, ‘Show Advanced Options’. Click on that box and in the drop-down settings area that appears, choose TCP as an option and in Buffer Size, choose 64. These settings will ensure you’re able to send and receive data at the speed rates the system will allow. Note: This workaround is useful for PC clients only.
