Sometimes one of CHPC's users needs to transfer large files with a colleague, and can't afford the delay of securing a uNID for their colleague. Other times, it's for a one-shot transfer.
That's where guest-transfer comes in. Anyone with a valid CHPC account can create an account for their colleague instantly, entirely on their own.
These accounts are only valid for a limited time and only have access to this one system, so there's no risk to anyone else.
This service isn't meant for all your file-sharing needs. If there's someone you're exchanging a lot of data with, over a prolonged period of time, please get them a unid and use the normal home directories. Everyone will be happier.
Once you have a guest-transfer account (or a CHPC account), usage is simple.
People with CHPC accounts can create guest-transfer accounts for their colleagues. To do so, just fill out the form below.
