    UPDATED Information:

    You can use normal Linux tools to transfer data into and out of your workspace. For example, sftp will establish a connection with your nanoHUB file share. You can also use built-in webdav support on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux operating systems to access your nanoHUB files on your local desktop.

    There are a few ways to do this. One is to use sftp to transfer files back and forth:


    Replace “yourlogin” with your nanoHUB login. The sftp program will prompt you for your nanoHUB password. You can then “cd” to the desired directory in the nanoHUB file system and use “get” or “put” to transfer files.

    Another way is to use webdav from your Linux, Mac, or Windows desktop to access your nanoHUB files. This lets you mount your nanoHUB file system locally, and transfer files by dragging them in or out of your file browser. For more details, see

    But you mentioned that you were transferring code around. The best way to do that is to use Subversion—a source code control system. You can add your files to a subversion repository, and then checkout that repository and edit it on many different systems. Subversion will keep your files in sync and help you resolve changes. If you follow the process for contributing tools to nanoHUB, we’ll create a project area for you on our site, which includes a Subversion repository for your source code.
