Moved from email to helpdesk:

Carlo is trying to transfer data under /projects/diamet/saclar/SWIFT/ensembles/ to a GWS on JASMIN. This is about 325Gb.

He has been pointed to the file transfer link on the Collaboration Twiki:

Recommending to use scp or rsync as the easiest to setup.

Last email from Carlo:

Apparently not, that's what I got.

Hi Carlo,

Do you have your jasmin private key under ~/.ssh/<id_rsa_jasmin>?

Where <id_rsa_jasmin> is what you called the key when you created it during the application process for jasmin. If you haven't done this then you need to copy your key over from whatever platform you usually log into jasmin from.

Then follow the instructions on JASMIN website explaining how to log in:

I have copied the jasmin key to monsoon but I am still getting the same error message (permission denied) when I try to scp from monsoon to jasmin.

Best regards,

Have you setup ssh-agent as per the instructions I sent above?

Hi Ros,
the problem is solved now. I had setup ssh-agent but I was still getting a warning, so I had to run chmod to change permission to the public keys.
