Accessing data using sftp
There is also the possibility to use sftp for retrieving data (as an alternative to using Globus)
- You need to have a registered telephone number where you can receive SMS in order to use the VPN service at MAX IV. Usually this is registered in DUO.
1. From Linux, simply type sftp ‘maxiv_user_name’@sftp.maxiv.lu.se on the command line
You will first be asked to log in using your MAX IV credentials.
Next you need to provide the “otp” code, which will be sent to your mobile number via SMS.
2. Go to the directory that you want to transfer. This will typically be under /data/visitors/biomax/’your_proposal’/’date’/etc…
E.g. cd /data/visitors/biomax/20181234/20181110/
3. get -R <dir>
this command will recursively download the directory dir to the path where you started sftp.
Typing “help” returns a list of commands
