SCP file transfer

From ALICE Documentation

SCP file transfer

You need to know to which file systems on ALICE you want to (and are allowed to) copy your files. See the Summary of available file systems for detail on which directory structures are available to you. Once you know where to/from you want to copy data use the Unix SCP command to perform the copy operation. Note: you have successfully setup key-based authentication and made an ssh configuration hostname hpc1:

 scp <local_file_name> hpc1:/data/<username>/

where you have previously created a directory on the /data file system

 mkdir /data/<username>

where <username> is your account name. This copies a local file to ALICE. To copy a file on an ALICE file system back to your local desktop or storage medium use:

 scp hpc1:/data<username>/<remote-file-name> .

where the . is representing the current directory. For more details on how to use scp te:

 man scp
