+Globus Connect enables your system to use the Globus file transfer and sharing service. It makes it simple to create a Globus endpoint on practically any system, from a personal laptop to a national supercomputer. Globus Connect is free to install and use for users at non-profit research and education institutions. This presents very brief notes for setting up globus connect multiuser.

+Globus Connect enables your system to use the Globus file transfer and sharing service. It makes it simple to create a Globus endpoint on practically any system, from a personal laptop to a national supercomputer. Globus Connect is free to install and use for users at non-profit research and education institutions.
+
+Here are very simple/sketchy notes on setup of globus-connect-multiuser, a server appropriate for hosting an endpoint on a multiuser machine such as a NAS or other file store.
+
+~~~ bash
+rpm -hUv http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
+yum install globus-connect-multiuser
+~~~
+
+EDIT /etc/globus-connect-multiuser.conf
+
+- Change username 
+- Change password 
+- Change public to True
+
+Then do:
+
+~~~ bash
+globus-connect-multiuser-setup
+~~~
+
+Any changes to the config file will require another:
+
+~~~ bash
+globus-connect-multiuser-setup
+~~~
+
+(which will simply restart servers, etc.)
+
+Make sure that appropriate ports are open in any firewall.
