Usually it is convenient to upload and download files between your personal computer and the HCC supercomputers through a Graphic User Interface (GUI). Download and install the third party application WinSCP to connect the file systems between your personal computer and the HCC supercomputers. Below is a step-by-step installation guide. Here we use the HCC cluster Crane for demonstration. To use the Rhino cluster, replace crane.unl.edu with rhino.unl.edu.

  1. On the first screen, type crane.unl.edu for Host name, enter your HCC account username and password for User name and Password. Then click on Login.

  2. On the second screen, click on Yes.

  3. Choose option “1” and press “Enter”. Or simply press your Yubikey if you have one.

  4. On the third screen, click on Remote. Under Remote, choose Go To and Open Directory/Bookmark. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl + O”.

  5. On the final screen, type /work/<group name>/<username> for Open directory. Use your HCC group name and username to replace <group name> and <username>. Then click on OK.

  6. Now you can drop and drag the files between your personal computer and the HCC supercomputers.
