*Globus Connect Personal* allows you to transfer files to and from your
personal computer.  Once this software is installed, file transfers are
simple and proceed in much the same way as transfers between HCC
endpoints.

2.  Once Globus Connect Personal
20
    has been successfully installed, your personal endpoint will show up
21
    in the 'Administered by You' section of the 'Endpoints' tab of
22
    your Globus home page.  This endpoint is private by default, and
