How do I transfer data between other Unix machines and MSI Unix machines?

You can either use scp or sftp or rsync to copy data directly in and out of your home directory on MSI systems. Replace resourcename with your desired MSI resource (such as Mesabi, Mangi, etc):

  • scp: 
    scp filename username@resourcename.msi.umn.edu:/home/group/username/
  • sftp: 
    
    sftp username@resourcename.msi.umn.edu
    sftp> ls
    sftp> put filename
    sftp> quit
  • rsync: 
    rsync -e ssh -avz directoryname resourcename.msi.umn.edu:/home/group/username

MSI does not currently allow remote mounting of MSI home directories via Network File System (NFS).
