Remote Connection

Remote connection instructions for accessing Pool supported group servers

Remote Access to Pool supported servers

For security reasons, the access to the Pool supported servers is restricted.

In order to allow access remotely, there are a number of "gateway" servers which will allow encrypted communication between your computer, and the file storage servers.

They support the SSH or SCP protocol.

Windows Clients:

I have found that WinSCP has been a reliable package for Windows users of the remote access systems:

Apple Mac Clients:

I have used FileZilla for MacOS.
