Data Transfer to and from ada.uea.ac.uk

To copy files from one system to another (Your PC to the Cluster) you will need to copy them on to the cluster using SCP or SFTP. 

 

Windows

We recommend that you use a free programme called WinSCP, which is installed on all UEA PC's by default.  If it isn't, it can be installed from the ServerSoftware Centre (Application Catalogue)

For personal machines,  WinSCP can be downloaded from the following page.

Details for configuring WinSCP can be found here.
