Access to articles

Use SSH to download articles through UiB:

    ssh "username" @ wget "link to the article"
    scp "username" @ ~/"name file" "name of file/filename you want to have"

"File Name" is usually the part after the last "/" in the link to the article. The character '"' should of course not be included.

Very often such records directly links to the file you want, but redirect you if you try to download from an none-authorized IP address.
