filexfer (in Workspace tool)
Accessing your home directory files via filexfer (in Workspace tool)
Filexfer, short for 'file transfer', is a utility that you can call from within the workspace tool to transfer a file into your home directory from your local machine or download a file from your home directory. Type 'filexfer' in the xterm provided to you when you start the workspace tool. You should now see the filexfer GUI as it appears in the image below.
Click on "Upload" or "Download" for the desired action. Please note, that you must enable pop-ups in your browser to proceed. The pop-up windows that appear allow you to browse or download per your selected action.
filexfer may also be included by other contributed tools as a secondary application. This provides a consistent and reliable method for exchanging files with tool sessions.
