[http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/fugu/ Fugu] is a graphical front-end to the command line Secure File Transfer application (SFTP). SFTP is similar to FTP, but unlike FTP, the entire session is encrypted, meaning no passwords are sent in cleartext form, and is thus much less vulnerable to third-party interception. It allows you to take advantage of SFTP's security without having to sacrifice the ease of use found in a GUI. Fugu also includes support for SCP files transfers, and the ability to create secure tunnels via SSH.

Access from MacOS

Using the Terminal Program

Find the Terminal program under Applications->Utilities.

On your Mac click the Finder Finder.png icon to start finder:

  1. Select Applications App-icon.jpg
  2. Double click the Utilities folder
  3. Double click the Terminal utility Term-icon.jpg
  4. A Terminal window will now appear.
  5. Connect to the cluster using SSH.

Remote Display of Programs with Graphical Interfaces

The recommended X-Windows emulator for Mac OS X is XQuartz, which is available for free from the XQuartz Project.

  1. After XQuartz is installed on your system, start XQuartz.
  2. An xterm window should appear on your screen.
  3. Login to the desired cluster (example: grace.tamu.edu).
    ssh -X netID@grace.tamu.edu
    The -X option tells SSH to allow programs to forward and display their graphical interfaces. This is known as X11 forwarding.
  4. To verify that X11 forwarding is working, type the following command:
    xterm
    If a new xterm terminal window for the remote system pops up, then X11 forwarding is working correctly.
