This page collects guide lines on the way online storage can be accessed.
Prerequirements needed are:
- A personal X509 certificate, signed by your organization or institute, issued by one of the grid certificate authorities (CAs) that are member of the IGTF or their affiliated registration authorities (RAs) is required for data transfers. Please ask your organisation or institute in order to acquire such a personal X.509 certificate from a Certification Authority and configure it properly on your machine.
- The distinguished name (DN) of your X.509 certificate. After receiving your personal X.509 certificate you need to forward the certificate's DN to the HLRS personnel in order to activate access to our GridFTP servers. To determine the DN, please run:
$ openssl x509 -noout -subject -in <YOUR_PERSONAL_X509_CERTIFICATE_FILE>
- a Linux machine with GridFTP clients installed (a User Interface installable through UMD can make the purpose)
