There are two methods to connect to the CB3 iRODS instance: using your web browser, or via CyberDuck.
### Connect using your web browser
Simply go to []( and login using your my.UNL credentials.
_Please note that the web interface is not suitable for uploading/downloading data in excess of 50MB._ Larger
data transfers should use CyberDuck instead.
### How to connect using CyberDuck
##### Follow this guide to setup Cyberduck for the first time when connecting to the CB3 iRODS datastore.
1. Download and install the Cyberduck from [the Cyberduck website](, or using the following direct links.
Cyberduck can also be installed from the Windows or Mac app store.
- [Windows installer](
- [Mac installer](
2. <a class="external-link" href="" ref="nofollow">Download the linked Cyberduck profile (right-click, save-as)</a> to a convenient location. Some browsers may append `.xml` to the filename. You may need to manually rename it to remove `.xml`.
3. Double-click on the downloaded file. It will open Cyberduck and add a new profile with the required information already filled in.
