YADE can be used on a jump host to provide file transfer across secure Internet / Intranet interfaces.
Why use a Jump Host?
A jump host is located in a DMZ (demilitarized zone) and therefore it can access servers at customer sites via the Internet. Local servers quite often are excluded from Internet access for security concerns.
Jump hosts are used in order to store files temporarily and to forward them to the final destination Depending on the transfer direction, this can either be a local server or a server at a customer site.
A typical jump host architecture is shown in the following diagram:

YADE does not store its configuration data on the jump host. Instead, the YADE Client hands over its parameterization to the jump host on-the-fly where it is used by an additional YADE Client instance.
Files stored temporarily on the jump host are removed on completion of the transfer.
No log output is created on the jump host and therefore private data is not stored on that host.
