|File transfer across CSIM firewall|
|You need to transfer some files to a project machine running inside CSIM firewall, but the direct connection is not allowed.|
You could transfer the files to bazooka and then from bazooka to your machine, but this is time consuming and error prone.
Instead, you can leverage puTTY and SSH tunnel to transfer the files directly to your project machine..
The first step is to make sure that file transfer can be used between your PC and your project machine; make the test while you are inside CSIM and there is not firewall issue. You must also test that TTY can be used to connect to bazooka.cs.ait.ac.th from outside CSIM.
File transfer needs only one tunnel on TCP port 22.
Enable compression: file transfer can be moving large pieces of data through the SSH tunnel, between your PC and your project machine; you better reduce the amount of data with ccompression.
Compression is configurable under the option SSH.
Create the tunnel on TCP port 22.
You should have the forwarded port showing like in the image:
|4.||Go to the session option at the very top and specify the destination where you connect to by entering bazooka.cs.ait.ac.th in the host name field.
Give a name to the session and save it: you will be able to reuse it later on.
You can then open the connection.
Later you will be able to open the session you have saved and proceed on, starting from step 5 below.
Enter your CSIM username and password.
|6.||Launch the file transfer client (here I use WinSCP) and connect to the server 127.0.0.1 or localhost.
Use the username and password as you would use on your project machine..
