How to transfer files to/from the server, deva
Files can be transferred to and from the server using Filezilla.
Download FileZilla from: https://filezilla-project.org
Scenario 1: moving files between your local machine (PC or Mac) and deva.
Once installed, enter the following information to establish a 'Quick Connection' to the server, deva:
[your CCB username]
[your CCB password]
Click: to establish the connection to deva.
The files in your home directory on deva will be displayed in the lower right panel of FileZilla. These can be dragged to the left panel in order to copy files from deva to your local machine. Similarly, dragging files from the left panel to the right panel will copy them from your local machine to a directory on deva.
Scenario 2: moving files between deva and a third-party file server.
FileZilla is already installed on deva and can therefore be used to transfer files between the CCB server and any other remote file server (for example, to transfer fastq files from a sequencing facility).
- Open a connection to deva using NX
- Click the 'Applications' menu / click 'Internet' / click 'FileZilla'
Alternatively, FileZilla can be opened from a terminal within NX:
- Type on the command line:
Once FileZilla is open, enter the connection details you have been given for the remote server in the Quickconnect settings as above.
