Programs required for Windows users (2016)

Attendees bringing a Windows PC will require a few extra programs to generate a terminal and copy files to/from the compute cluster. 

We have created a pdf guide for downloading and installing PuTTY and WinSCP. If you have any issues with the links in the document, please use the links to each program download site below.

PuTTY & WinSCP Installation Guide

PuTTY - This program generates a terminal that is used to access the server. Only the executable file (putty.exe) is required.

WinSCP - This is a program used for Secure Transfer Protocol that allows you to securely transfer files to/from the server. Go to the Download page and click on "Installation Package" to install
