How to log into

    • To log into the gateway simply double-click the "Saved session" you created.
    • This will open up a terminal session for you and it prompts you for your COE password

    • Now you are logged into one of our gateway host machines.


How to log into Linux machines and get a graphical program to display on your local machine

    • You are now logged into gateway on the black box section on the bottom right is your cursor waiting for input.
    • Type this command.
      • linux-load --> this will display about 10 linux machines such as ergs, farads, grams etc
    • Pick a machine that has the least number of users and type the following command
      • ssh -Y -p 27 <machine> ---> the Y is capitalized and place the name of the machine.
    • The first time you log in to this machine it will ask you to authenticate your host simply type yes
    • If all goes well you should now be logged into the Linux machine.
    • To run a graphical program like "matlab" simply type this:
      • matlab & ---> the ampersand symbol allows the session to run in the background. If all goes well matlab should appear on your desktop.
    • That should do it.
