- If not set permanently, begin by sourcing the setup environment:
$ source setup_env
- Upload file using the lstcp command (form, then an example):
$ lstcp filepath/filename server_name:/home/username/filepath/filename $ lstcp ~/lstore/tests/upload2 testmeta1.reddnet.org:/home/<username>/
- When asked for the password, use the general system password "changeme" (password for lstore_root, which was set as the login-id in setup_env) which is in effect until individual user security systems are created. You should only have to do this once per session.
- When uploading (or downloading), you can specify a new name for the file at the end of the filepath. If you are trying to place the uploaded file in a new directory, use the --mkdir option outlined in Other Applications
- Output: (the warnings may or may not appear, and can be ignored)
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (root). log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly. Copying from /home/<username>/lstore/tests/upload2 to <username>@testmeta1.reddnet.org:2702/home/<username>/upload2
- Again, begin by sourcing the setup environment as above.
- Download file using the lstcp command (form, then an example):
$ lstcp lstore_server_name:/home/username/filepath/filename filepath/filename $ lstcp testmeta1.reddnet.org:/home/<username>/upload2 ~/lstore/tests/download2
- Output: (again the warnings can be ignored if they appear)
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (root). log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly. Copying from email@example.com:2702/home/managaje/upload2 to /home/managaje/lstore/tests/download2 .
- The file should now appear in the download directory:
$ ls download2 upload2
