This tutorial describes how to configure the Command Line Client (CLC) to transfer files via a jump host that has a JADE client already installed on it.
This is a relatively complex example but it has been deliberately selected to demonstrate how simple, real life use cases can be configured using JADE and the XML Editor.
This tutorial describes the use of the SOS XML Editor to generate the necessary transfer configuration file. The Editor uses an XSD schema to generate and validate the JADE configuration. In addition, the Editor is able to generate the the new XML format that will be introduced with release 1.11 of JADE. The use of the Editor is intended to simplify and speed up the configuration process, particularly for complex file transfer situations.
Consider the situation in an organization where security restrictions prohibit direct file transfer between parts of the organization network and the Internet and between different parts of the organization.
In particular, consider the case where a user wishes to transfer files from their desktop computer over the Internet to a server, Japan, and where:
- The user can only reach the Internet via a proxy server.
- The Japan server can only be reached via a jump host in a so-called demilitarized zone (DMZ) on a server UK.
The jump host already has a JADE command line client installed to enable file transfer across the DMZ.
