that has been completed, follow the steps below to begin transferring
files.  (Note: You can also transfer files between an HCC endpoint and
any other Globus endpoint for which you have authorized access.  That
may include a [personal

or an endpoint on another computing resource or cluster.  Once the
endpoints have been activated, the file transfer process is generally
the same regardless of the type of endpoints you use.  For demonstration
purposes we use two HCC endpoints.)

1.  Once both endpoints for the desired file transfer have been

    your Globus account (if you are not already) and click on the
    'Transfer Files' tab.
      
2.  Enter the names of the two endpoints you would like to use, or
    select from the drop-down menus (for
    example, `hcc#tusker` and `hcc#crane`).  Click 'Go' for both
    endpoints to view the default directory contents.  Enter the
    directory paths for both the source and destination (the 'from' and
    'to' paths on the respective endpoints).  Click 'Go' to view files
    under these directories.  Select the files or directories you would

3.  The status of the transfer can be monitored from the current window
    (scroll down to the 'Activity' heading and click the gray arrow on
    the right-hand side of the screen). You will also receive an email
    when your transfer has completed (or in the unlikely event that it
    was unsuccessful).
