|Load Credential||Screenshot 1 Screenshot 2||Loads up a Globus credential either locally or via
MyProxy. If you create a proxy from a local credential
then a proxy goes into the default proxy location. If you
get a proxy from a MyProxy server the proxy only exists
internally to the Cogbox.|
|Open Local File View||Screenshot||Opens up a local filesystem view.|
|Open Secure Connection||Screenshot 1
| Attempts to establish a secure connection to
the specified server. See the installation instructions for
information regarding your cogbox.properties file.
|Open Insecure Connection||Screenshot 1
| Attempts to establish a connection to the
specified server via normal FTP. Enter the desired system
name or ip address, and your username and password on that
system in the dialog box - note this passes the username and
password you enter to the specified server in the clear,
|Open Anonymous Connection||Screenshot 1
| Opens up an anonymous ftp connection to the desired
machine. All you have to enter in the dialog in this case is
the machine name to which you would like to
|Open RSL DropArea||Screenshot 1
|Opens a window to a server onto which you can drop RSL
files from either your local filesystem or the
|Open Playpen||Screenshot|| Opens the "Playpen", the area in which you store your RSL
files for instantiation in DropAreas.
|Quit||Closes all connections, closes all windows, ends
|Refresh View||Refreshes the current directory listing.|
|New Directory||Makes a new directory in the current working directory.|
|Delete||Deletes selected files (A warning dialog will pop
|Transfer Out||If you can't find the window you want to move files to, or
Drag&Drop isn't working properly, you can select a list of
files from the current working directory and then hit the
"Transfer Out" button. A list of currently open server
windows will pop up (including the Playpen, if it's open),
and you can choose the server to which you want to transfer
the selected files.
|Disconnect||Closes this connection, closes this window.
|Edit RSL||Allows you to view/edit an RSL file in the playpen.|
There is a radio button which when activated causes the job being edited to throw its output up in a local window. The selected value is remembered from session to session, so setting it once will make all jobs started with that RSL throw up local output windows until you unset it. The Save button will attempt to validate your RSL string before allowing you to save the string to a file. The Revert button restores the saved version of the file in case you want to start over with your edit.
NOTE : I add something to the RSL file in order to achieve local output, so if you have Local Output selected for a particular RSL file that RSL file becomes unfit for use elsewhere, although fixing it is beneath trivial. Examining the file in the playpen directory will prove it.
|Transfer Out||Move an RSL file to some open Server Window or DropArea.
If you select a Server Window the file is copied to
that server. If you select a DropArea the RSL is
instantiated on that server.
|Disconnect||Closes the Playpen.
|Enter Search Attributes||Screenshot||Allows you to specify new search attributes, including host, port, search string, and attribute to return. If you have values in your cogbox.properties file these values will be filled in the boxes for you so you can edit them, otherwise they will be blank. Once you have entered in a search, the last values you used will be the values that are presented in the dialogue box for you. When you close the MDS search window, these values are reset to their startup values.|
|Close MDS Window||Closes the MDS Search Window.
hostname:portyou can attempt to open a secure ftp connection to that resource with your currently loaded credentials. Attempting to open secure connections to nonsensical search values results in peculiar behavior (on part of the cogbox).
