How to upload/download data, scripts, results etc. between the cluster and a local machine?
There are two different options:
- File transfer via FTP/SFTP
- Network access transfer
1. Transfer via FTP / SFTP:
This option utilizes a FTP/SFTP program to handle file transfers. Different OS have various options, so feel free to google or use what you are familiar with. Two suggestions:
Open the program and establish connection to the cluster using the following information:
- Protocol: SFTP
- Address/Server/Host name: transfer.gbar.dtu.dk
- Port: 22
- Account: DTU username (initials) and password
Once connection has been established navigate to the project folder on the data storage and start transferring files to or from it.
❗Avoid using host name thinlinc.gbar.dtu.dk, although this will work.
2. Network access from local machine:
This option gives more “direct access” to the cluster, in the sense that you don’t need a 3rd-party program, but can work with the data storage as though it was just a drive/folder on your local machine.
# – Requirements – #
- The local computer is on campus with cabled internet connection
- The local computer is connected to DTU via VPN
VPN at DTU: Check for example this ITS-wiki page or these DTU Inside links page 1, page 2 for more information about VPNs at DTU. While DTU recommends the Cisco AnyConnect client to be used, alternatives do exist e.g. OpenVPN.
# – Accessing files – #
Once you have network access, you should be able to see and interact with the 3d-imaging-center folder as though it was a local folder.

In Mac OS:
