    2323Users often find it useful to create a "file set" containing all their code and test data.  Having created a file set, the user then wants to load the file set onto a set of nodes in the topology.  Users often want to try their code on a variety of topologies.  As a result, we enable users to copy files from their local machine to the GENI Desktop server which will store them in directories (and subdirectories), thereby allowing users to create file sets that can be quickly loaded onto any topology they create.
     25=== Copying File Sets to Nodes ===
     27To copy a file set to a node(s), select the node(s) in the topology view and then click "Set Selection".  You can also select the destination directory on the nodes where you want the files to be placed.  After selecting the destination nodes, destination directory, and file set to copy, you can click "Copy Portal Files to Nodes" to copy the files onto the nodes.  A progress bar is displayed to show how much of the file set has been copied.
     29=== Running Commands on Nodes ===
     31Again using the launcher, select the "Command" module which will open up a Run Command Window (see below).  Select the nodes on which you want to run a command using the topology viewer.  Type in the command you want to execute in the Run Command window and
     32press the "Run Command" button in the window.  This will open up new tab with the output from the command.
