To copy data from Diamond to a remote site, you have to go through Diamond's secure shell(ssh) gateway, a server called 'nx.diamond.ac.uk'. This server accepts only ssh connections and connections to NX. Data can be copied from this server using the scp, sftp, or rsync (using ssh protocol) applications.
There are numerous remote transfer clients for Mac; the shown examples are Cyberduck (using 'sftp' as the protocol) for a graphical tool, and command-line rsync. Command line sftp/scp would work as well.
You will have to log in using your FedId (if this does not work then try adding CLRC\ before the Fedid). Note that this drops you into your home directory (/home/yourFedId), from where you will have to navigate into the data directory to which you want to go. The data directory can be found as /dls/BEAMLINE/data/YEAR/EXPERIMENT-VISIT. (e.g. /dls/b18/data/2010/nt1994-1).
Transfer using Cyberduck:
Or using command line rsync (to transfer data from visit cm2059-4 on I02):
