How to configure "CloudFerro Remote Transfer for EODATA" using s3cmd (Linux)?



In the solution we will use the following terms to describe:

<ACCESS_KEY> - your access key created on "https://clients.creodias.eu" website.

<SECRET_KEY> - your secret key created on "https://clients.creodias.eu" website.


Configure s3cmd to use "CloudFerro Remote Transfer for EODATA"

  1. Type the command to configure s3cmd.
    $ s3cmd --configure
  2. Complete the configuration as below. <ACCESS_KEY> and <SECRET_KEY> are your credentials for "CloudFerro Remote Transfer for EODATA".

    Enter new values or accept defaults in brackets with Enter.
    Refer to user manual for detailed description of all options.
    Access Key: <ACCESS_KEY>
    Secret Key: <SECRET_KEY>
    Default Region [US]:
    Use "s3.amazonaws.com" for S3 Endpoint and not modify it to the target Amazon S3.
    S3 Endpoint [s3.amazonaws.com]: s3.cloudferro.com
    Use "%(bucket)s.s3.amazonaws.com" to the target Amazon S3. "%(bucket)s" and "%(location)s" vars can be used
    if the target S3 system supports dns based buckets.
    DNS-style bucket+hostname:port template for accessing a bucket [%(bucket)s.s3.amazonaws.com]: s3.cloudferro.com
    Encryption password is used to protect your files from reading
    by unauthorized persons while in transfer to S3
    Encryption password:
    Path to GPG program [/usr/bin/gpg]:
    When using secure HTTPS protocol all communication with Amazon S3
    servers is protected from 3rd party eavesdropping. This method is
    slower than plain HTTP, and can only be proxied with Python 2.7 or newer
    Use HTTPS protocol [Yes]: yes
    On some networks all internet access must go through a HTTP proxy.
    Try setting it here if you can't connect to S3 directly
    HTTP Proxy server name:
    New settings:
       Access Key: <ACCESS_KEY>
       Secret Key: <SECRET_KEY>
       Default Region: US
       S3 Endpoint: s3.cloudferro.com
       DNS-style bucket+hostname:port template for accessing a bucket: s3.cloudferro.com
       Encryption password:
       Path to GPG program: /usr/bin/gpg
       Use HTTPS protocol: True
       HTTP Proxy server name:
       HTTP Proxy server port: 0
     Test access with supplied credentials? [Y/n] y
     Please wait, attempting to list all buckets...
     Success. Your access key and secret key worked fine :-)
     Now verifying that encryption works...
     Not configured. Never mind.
     Save settings? [y/N]  y
     Configuration saved to '/home/eouser/.s3cfg'
  3. Now you can use s3cmd commands (additional information about s3cmd: http://s3tools.org/usage)

    $ s3cmd ls
