Transfer Data With

1. Using a web browser, sign in to If you haven't used before, you will have to create a new account (or you can log in with your institutional account in some cases, or with ORCID). Your globus online account name and password do not have to match the username you use in the steps below when you access our computers.

2. The interface of globus changes from time to time, but find the interface for transferring files, and look for our server as the first "endpoint", named alsuser#data832. It will ask you for your username/password. Please use the same user name and password you were assigned to use the computers at the beamline.

3. Now you need to add your own computer or server as the other endpoint. If you are using a desktop computer, you will probably want to install "Globus Connect Personal". Once you've installed it and started it running, you should see your computer showing up in the list of endpoints on the web interface as username#computername (where username and computername are the ones for the computer you're sitting at).

4. Now you can transfer data between endpoints. Choose your computer as one endpoint, and alsuser#data832 as the other endpoint. The default path for the alsuser#data832 is /~/ (the "home" directory). We have set your "home" directory to be /data/scratch/your_username. The other path you might be interested in on our server is /data/raw/your_username. (In both cases here, your_username refers to the username you received for the Beamline 8.3.2 computers.)
