Grid FTP GUI
You will require
Java (TM) Runtime Environment to run this software. It
requires atleast Java 1.6 to be installed.
Garuda GridFTP tool connects to the port 2999 of the Garuda resource. Hence please open this port for outgoing connections in your Firewall settings.
Some of the Antivirus software report that the application is trying to open an untrusted port and hence block the application from running. In such cases, you can temporarily disable your antivirus software, while using the tool.
Download the installer and click to run the setup. You can then invoke the program using the Start Menu Item -> Garuda -> Grid FTP GUI
Download the Zip file and extract the contents of it. This is our TOOL_HOME directory. Set Java to be available on the PATH.
The extracted content contains a folder called 'certificates'. This contains the CA certificate files.
Login as root and move this folder to /etc/grid-security/. If the 'grid-security' folder is not present in /etc, then please create it.
Use run.sh script available in the
TOOL_HOME folder, to invoke the software

Make sure that you are using Java 1.6 or later. You can also view the run.bat (for Windows) and run.sh (for Linux) files to see if the Java CLASSPATH is properly set.
Make sure that the Java binaries are available in the PATH. To check this, Windows users can open a command shell by typing 'cmd' from Windows Start Menu->Run. Linux users can use any terminal through which you are trying to open the tool.
Type 'java -version' in the command line, and it should display the version of Java that you are using.
If not, then the Java is not properly available in the executable PATH. So please add it by setting the PATH variable.
This happens if the CA certificates are not available in proper path on your desktop.
On Windows machines, please ensure that under %HOMEPATH% directory, you have created a .globus directory and it contains a subfolder called 'certificates'. The 'certificates' directory should contain files starting with "da75f6a8", which are the CA certificate files.
On Linux machines, the certificates folder should be available in /etc/grid-security. If not, please follow the installation instructions carefully.
This happens when you use different
versions of OpenSSL to convert your p12 or pfx certificate to
PEM format. Please use
OpenSSL version 0.9.8r for Windows.
