An endpoint is a combination of a login account (an account on the node that has been configured for FASP file transfers) and a node address. For example, the endpoint userA@nodeA is User A's login account on Node A. Endpoints enable a user to create a transfer without entering login credentials. Sharing an endpoint with a user without login credentials allows that user to send or receive files without compromising security.
Wildcards can also be used within endpoints. For example, the wildcarded endpoint *@nodeA (interpreted as "all logins at node A") is automatically created when adding the node (in this case, nodeA) to Console. Using endpoints with wildcards, you can monitor all transfers on a given node as well as prompt for a specific login account when a user initiates a transfer on the node.
|Name||Enter a descriptive name for this endpoint.|
|Login||Enter the login name of the node machine user.|
|Password / SSH Key||Authenticate the account with either a password or a saved
public key. To authenticate by password, enter the account password.
Otherwise, check Use SSH Key and select your
uploaded key to authenticate with public key. To use public key
authentication, you must have your SSH private key configured in
Console. For instructions, on how to configure SSH keys in Console,
see SSH Keys.
Important: When using SSH key authentication, make sure that the key file on the node is not a shared key. On the node computer, the key file should be a "private" key in the specified user account.
|Email address||Enter an email address to receive notifications of the transfer activity on this endpoint. This option accepts multiple email addresses.|
