Secure File Transfer System¶
Files and version management repositories are securely shared using a system at xfer.goldencode.com. This system supports two protocols, secure copy (
scp) and secure FTP (
sftp). In order to participate in development tasks for FWD, you will need an account on xfer.goldencode.com. Your contact in the FWD project can arrange this.
For file transfer, any system with
ssh tools will be able to send or receive files.
| In Linux systems, an
bzr directly supports the
sftp protocol. To checkout a project, you can use an sftp URL:
bzr checkout sftp://<userid>@xfer.goldencode.com/<project_location/
Key Based Authentication¶
Initially, any usage of the system will prompt you for a password, which quickly will become annoying. To set up password-less access to xfer.goldencode.com, please use the ssh-keygen tool to generate a public/private key pair, accepting all the defaults (including a blank password).
Then scp the resulting .ssh/id_rsa.pub file to xfer.goldencode.com:
scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub <userid>@xfer.goldencode.com:
Notify your FWD project contact when this is uploaded, and they will finish the setup of password-less access.
