Globus Quick Start for Systems Administrators

To install this package on various types of Linux systems, follow the instructions here

For more information on the command line interface, you can refer to the Globus CLI documentation.

Local Globus Shell

With the latest iteration of the Globus Connect Server package there is now a local “globus” command that is used instead of hosted version that requires using ssh to connect to

Using a bash shell, run:

 $globus login

As in the previous example, you now have access to a limited shell that can execute a number of Globus commands.  For further information on the command line interface, you see the Globus CLI documentation and the Globus CLI Command Reference.
