Connect your favourite sFTP client (e.g. FileZilla, CyberDuck, sftp) to the server with these details
The SFTP user name is a combination of the Domain and Username of the Mediaflux account.
In this example I connect to the VicNode server with an AAF account via the command-line sftp client
sftp -P 21 AAF:unimelb:firstname.lastname@example.org
sftp -P 21 -o User=AAF:unimelb:nkilleen mediaflux.researchsoftware.unimelb.edu.au
Note: We've noticed the first sftp command fails on Mac OS Mojave. So use the second command if you are on Mac OS Mojave. Otherwise the two commands should both work on other operating systems.
Once logged in by this method, all the known Project Volumes will be visible. Users will only have access to the project /Volumes folders of any collection they have rights to see just, as if it was a simple folder and file system. Filezilla is recommended for all desktop platforms (Linux, MacOS and Windows). WinSCP is known to work well for Windows users as does FileZilla and Cyberduck for Macintosh users.
If using FileZilla, we suggest use the site manager to manage connections, there are some issues with the QuickConnect mechanism.
