To IT Admins,

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

The file transfer application (http://inside.anl.gov/tools/applications/file-transfer-application) will be decommissioned. For sharing files, it is now recommended to use Box. Box is Argonne’s secure cloud-based file system that allows you to organize, share, and collaborate on files without the use of VPN.

WHEN WILL THIS OCCUR?
