Transferring files

Uploading files to compute resources can be accomplished using command line tools such as SCP or Secure File Transfer tools such as FileZilla, Web Transfer tools such as Globus Online or Windows File Explorer

Koko File Transfer in Windows:

Using Windows File Explorer

  • Open File Explorer
  • Navigate to \\ in the address bar
    • If prompted for user credentials enter your FAU NetID (such as “fau\<username>”)
  • Open your group share or personal folder to copy data to or from koko

Using Mac OS X Finder

  • In Finder, click Go and select ‘Connect to Server…’
  • Type in ‘smb://’ in the Server Address field. If you are on the Boca Campus’ WiFi network, please use smb:// instead.
  • Enter your FAU credentials with fau\<username> as the format for the Name field and click Connect to continue. FAU indicates the domain where your username resides.
    • Checking the “Remember this password in my keychain” box will save the username and password but you may have issues when you are required to change your password again.
  • Select the folder you wish to connect to and select OK. The folder with your username is your home directory. The folder labeled ‘groups’ is for users that have a group share on Koko.
