To VNC Connect to one of the computers located in Kemper 2107 or 2110
The pluse to using this method is if you get disconnected, your work will still be
there. Its also nice for running long term simulations.
The small list of computer name bellow are ones you can ssh into, i.e. replace snake
with the following names such as...
>> ssh -X email@example.com
You are dirrectly connecting to that machine (in this case racer). The names of
the computers are located on each machine
- NOTE: VNC is enabled but not supported by ECE suport
- For X11 forwarding and other ways to connect to the computers in Kemper see:
First ssh into one of the machines by typing the following at your
comand promt (see ssh help from ECE support, i.e. Remote Tutorial
above). The "snake" machine is not a real computer
>> ssh <your use name>@snake.ece.ucdavis.edu
The actual computer your logged into will show up on the command
prompt. Right now I'm logged into boom
To enable the VNC server on your machine
>>vncserver -geometry 1440x900
MAKE SURE IT SAYS "computer:1", in the case shown above "boom:1"
otherwise you don't own the graphics on this computer
(note, X11 forwarding does not have this problem,i.e. the other methods of connecting
presented in tutorial above). Also note which computer you are now setting up a VNC sever on...
YOU ARE NOT DONE!
Now you need to set a password
Type in some password that you'll remember. Skip the 2nd step, its just
for your information.
To kill the server
>> vncserver -kill :1
The :1 is referring to the vnc server that is currently up
Second download Real VNC for your proper OS
Third Install and Open up Real VNC
Next you'll be asked to connect with an unencrypted connection,
just click the button Continue
Finally, you'll type in the password you set for the server earlier
A Small List of Actual Computers
Note, probably wiser to write down one of the names
of the computers not listed here... there are over 50 Linux
computers to ssh into
