SFTP / SCP file access

Instead of using samba to access CLASSE filesystems, you may use any method that works with the SFTP/SCP protocols. Some popular options are given below.

Windows

  • WinSCP is our recommended SFTP/SCP software for Windows:
    • CLASSE-managed Windows computers: Look in the Start Menu
    • Personal Windows computers: Download the latest version from http://winscp.net/eng/index.php
    • See below for usage instructions.
  • Users with personal computers may also use Globus (GridFTP).

macOS

  • Fetch is a graphical interface for SFTP/SCP on macOS:
  • Or you can type SFTP/SCP commands in a Terminal window:
  • Users with personal computers may also use Globus (GridFTP).
