Connect to your Aspera dropbox

The features described in this article are available only to partners who use YouTube's Content Manager to manage their copyrighted content.

Once you’ve configured your dropbox, you need to create a reusable connection between your Aspera client and your dropbox.

Make sure you have the dropbox name and IP address on hand for easy reference; you can find this information on the Dropbox Account settings page in the YouTube Content Manager.

To create an Aspera connection:

  1. Open your Aspera client.

  2. Click the Connections icon to open the Connection Manager.

  3. Click + to create a new connection.

  4. Enter the IP address for your dropbox into the Host text box.

  5. Enter the dropbox name in the User text box.

  6. Select Public Key as the authentication option, then choose the key for this dropbox from the list of available keys.

  7. Click the Advanced button to display the Advanced Connection Settings.

  8. Change the value for SSH Port (TCP) to 33001.

  9. Click OK twice to save your changes and return to the main Aspera client screen.

    Your new connection appears on the right side of the screen.
