Site manager button

The site manager can save your login info for use later. At the left of the top toolbar there is a button for the site manager. It will bring up a menu for sites you want to save login info for. Click the button New site to start a new site. Under the General tab change the protocol to SFTP - SSH File Transfer Protocol under the drop down menu, then fill out the info with:

You will now have an icon on the left under My Sites for this connection. Just double click on it or click connect with your site highlighted and it will connect to shamu with the info provided.
