Globus Connect Personal allows you to share and transfer files to and from your Mac laptop or desktop computer — even if it's behind a firewall. Follow the easy steps below to turn your Mac into a full-fledged Globus endpoint.
Enter a name for your endpoint. This name can be anything you choose, as long as you haven’t previously created another endpoint with the same name.
Click “Generate Setup Key”.
Select the generated key with your mouse and copy it to the clipboard.
Click "for Mac OS X" to download the Mac installer.
Double click the downloaded file it to open. You should see a ‘Globus Connect Personal’ volume attached and opened in the Finder. Drag the ‘Globus Connect Personal’ application to the Applications folder to install as shown below.
Run 'Globus Connect Personal' from your Applications folder. Since this is the first time you are running Globus Connect Personal, you will see the Initial Setup window below where you are required to enter a setup key.
Paste in the key you generated in step 2 above. The ‘OK’ button will be enabled if the key is valid. Click ‘OK’ to complete the installation. (If the ‘OK’ button is not enabled, please ensure you have properly copied the entire key generated in step 2 above.
After installation, Globus Connect Personalwill connect to Globus and wait for transfer and sharing commands. The application will appear as an icon on the Mac menu bar — as shown below — indicating Globus Connect Personalis running properly and is connected to Globus.
Globus Connect Personal for Mac OS X provides a number of user-configurable preferences, including customizing the look-and-feel and controlling access to your files. Details are available here.
By default, Globus Connect Personal does not automatically start when you boot or log in to your computer. If you would like the application to automatically start when you log in, please do the following:
Go to System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Items.
Click the ‘+’ icon to add an entry.
Browse to Applications/Globus Connect Personal.
The above procedure works for Mac OS X versions 10.4 and later. You may follow a similar procedure on older versions.
