How to Download Software from FTP.CC

The licensed software provided by METU.CC can be downloaded from

https://ftp.cc.metu.edu.tr

which requires authentication with METU academic or administrative personnel user name and passwords. Ftp.cc is only accessible from METU network.

Well known web browsers like Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer can be used to connect and download software from https://ftp.cc.metu.edu.tr. After downloading any software, it is necessary to see the installation instruction pages at http://software.cc.metu.edu.tr/ before proceeding to installation. The information about license servers, serials and product activation processes are provided in these pages, which are required during installations. 

Software Installation by Using ISO Files:

Due to technical requirements and practicality provided by these, software installation sources are made available as ISO files (CD/DVD images). Some other sources are in Zip or executable file format (.exe). Downloaded Iso files should be extracted to a folder (directory) using the tiny 7-Zip program. The installation can be started from these folders (usually by locating and running a setup.exe file after the extraction to the folder). So burning iso files into CD or DVD is not necessary. For detailed information about installation with ISO files see: https://faq.cc.metu.edu.tr/tr/sss/iso-dosyalarindan-cddvd-kaliplarindan-yazilim-kurulumu-nasil-yapilir (in Turkish)

Ftpstu is only accessible from METU network.Except the antivirus software, the remaining available ones use network licensing which requires the computer to be connected to METU campus network not only during the installation but also during the use of the software. After downloading any software, it is necessary to see the installation instruction pages at http://software.cc.metu.edu.tr/ before proceeding to installation.
