How to connect to sandbox from other machine?

    I have installed the sadbox in my mac. I am able to access sandbox through the browser. No issues. I need to access these files from other windows machine.
    How do I access it? I do not want to install sandbox in my windows machine. Do you have any common folder which can be accessed for this purpose? OR do you have any REST service available? Thanks, Raje J

    Hi Raje,
    If you are referring to the files on the sandbox such as configs, you can use PuTTy. If you want access to the files stored in HDFS, you can use Hue which is part of the sandbox. I hope this helps.
