Getting to Wahoo files from home

  • Get and install Filezilla (see here).
  • Open FileZilla
  • Open Site Manager from the File Menu:
    • Host name: wahoo.nsm.umass.edu
    • Username: your bcrc username
    • password: your bcrc password
    • port: 22
    • Protocol: SFTP
    • Logon Type: ask for passwork
    • User: your BCRC username
  • Click Connect
  • Enter your BCRC username and password
  • The first time, you get a warning about an unknown host. Check the box next to Always trust this host, add this key to the cache, and click OK
  • You should be in a directory called something like /u1/home/bio/username (with your bcrc username, of course).
  • Clear the Remote site and type the appropriate one of these:

    • /export/quantbiol
    • /export/Bioimaging
    • /export/mboms
  • Enlarge the absurdly small window under the remote site bar and scroll to find your microscope folder. Move files between local and remote folders by drag-and-drop, or by right click and upload (local to remote) or download (remote to local)

Voilà!
