Network Data Mover (NDM) was a UNIX data application that transferred information between UNIX server computers. It was purchased by Sterling Software and renamed "Connect:Direct," although it offers identical functionality. All connections from NDM exist in a client to server fashion and occur directly from computer to computer. It is used as an alternative to file transfer protocol (FTP) because it has greater speed, CPU support and command-line features.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log into your UNIX computer using your user name and password.

  2. 2

    Type "ndmcli" to open the NDM command-line application.

  3. 3

    Type "connect <server>" to connect to an NDM server directly. Replace "<server>" with the address of the server.

  4. 4

    Supply your username and password, if prompted. Press "Enter." You have now established a direct NDM link.
