Globus Toolkit Clients

Install your certificates
  1. Install your APAC grid certificates in: (LINUX) $HOME/.globus/usercert.pem and userkey.pem
  2. Install the APAC's CA cert and signing policy into (LINUX) $HOME/.globus/certificates, (WINDOWS) %HOMEPATH%/.globus/certificates ( 1e12d831.0 & 1e12d831.signing_policy)

  1. untar the package
  2. "cd" into the directory created
  3. run "./configure"
  4. run "make wsc"
  5. You should be setup!

Once again, as an alternative you may use Globus java ws core, but the c version is recommended. It is a single command line copy tool with many features (C version), which works with globus based proxies.

Globus Java ws-core

Globus, it has a java version ws-core and a C version. The C version does much more and is a lot faster.


An alternative gridftp clien on linux is UberFTP, an interactive, GridFTP-enabled ftp client. It supports GSI authentication, parallel data channels and third party transfers. This tool is widely used and is well maintained.


For SRB, please use either Scommands for Linux. Please see StorageResourceBrokerUsageSRB for info
