    99We recommend using one of the following free programs (see below), however, May First will work with any program that uses the secure copy/secure FTP protocol.

    13 You will be asked with "host" or "server" you would like to connect to. Although you can use your domain name (such as mayfirst.org), we recommend that you specify your Primary host instead (such as malcolm.mayfirst.org, chavez.mayfirst.org, etc.). You can find your primary host by logging into the [https://members.mayfirst.org/cp Members Control Panel] and looking in the top right corner.

    15 The first time you connect to one of our servers, your Secure FTP program should warn you that you are connecting to a server that you have never connected to before. This warning is important! You do not want to risk connecting to the wrong server, because you will essentially be handing this server your username and password.

    17 Please review our [wiki:fingerprints fingerprints page] to ensure that the fingerprint that is being reported matches the fingerprint of the server you are connecting to.
