How to File Transfer betweeen same accounts

If you have the same account on SX-ACE/VCC and OCTOPUS, please adopt this way. You can access from OCTOPUS login server to a part of SX-ACE/ VCC's file system. In the case, please note that file pass differs by depending on file systems.

file pass on SQUID file pass in the case of accessing from OCTOPUS *

    + If you want to transfer the file "sample.f" onto the home directory on SX-ACE to the home directory on OCTOPUS:

% cp /SC/HOME/a61234/abc ~
