Transit user guide


To facilitate secure data transfers to and from the system for computing on sensitive data (bianca/castor) a service is available via ssh at transit.uppmax.uu.se.

You can connect to transit via ssh. Once connected, you should see a short help message. The most important thing there is the

mount_wharf command

which you can use to mount a project from the bianca wharf, as in

username@transit:~$ mount_wharf sens2016001
Mounting wharf (accessible for you only) to /home/username/sens2016001
username-sens2016001@bianca-sftp.uppmax.uu.se's password: 
username@transit:~$ ls sens2016001/
Desktop test

Note that your home directory is mounted read-only, any changes you do to your "local" home directory (on transit) will be forgotten afterwards.

You can use commands like rsync, scp and similar to fetch data and transfer it to your bianca wharf.
