Transferring Files To/From The CVL

Linux/Mac

Command Line :

Use the "scp" (Secure Copy command) for transferring files to the CVL. The following will copy a local file in your current directory to the destination folder on the CVL. You will be asked for you password before it proceeds.

scp somefile usernameatlogin.cvl.massive.org.au:~/destinationfolder/

 

The above can be reversed to copy files from the CVL. The following will copy a file on the CVL into your current directory (specified in the command line using the "."). You will be asked for you password before it proceeds.

scp usernameatlogin.cvl.massive.org.au:~/destinationfolder/somefile 

 

You can also copy from the CVL to another system. From login.cvl.massive.org.au, the following will copy a local file in your current directory to the destination folder on another system (assuming you are also able to ssh login to it).

scp somefile usernameatanothersystem.og.au:~/destinationfolder

 

For more details type "man scp" on the CVL. Common commands are:

Copy recursively (-r) all files in a directory:

scp -r somedir usernameatlogin.cvl.massive.org.au:~/destinationfolder/

 

MacOS X

Using GUI client Cyberduck See: Client Software Requirements

CVLUserGuide Cyberduck

 

Windows

Using WinSCP See: Client Software Requirements

The steps are similar to the above but WinSCP hides the commands behind a GUI. You are presented with a similar interface to Windows Explorer or a FTP client.

1) The first step is to start WinSCP and save a connection with login.cvl.massive.org.au and your username.

2) Next login using the above saved connection

3) Start transferring files, left is your local file system and right is the CVL file system. Be careful as it is very easy to drag and drop files to new locations, it is also easy to make mistakes.
