Instructions for setting up a remote connection to the VLSI Teaching machines
Remote students need the ability to remotely run the design tools on our VLSI/CISL Teaching machines in Mudd 12th floor. There are two ways to remotely login:
- NX uses compression technology to get a very fast reponse over
remote connections. It requires downloading a free client to install
on your computer; follow
We recommend to try NX first before falling back on the SSH/XWindows option.
- SSH/XWindows: This involves setting up an ssh connection to the
machines and running an Xserver on your system.
Follow these instructions.
Tips to get your connection going.
Make sure your are confident you have a sufficiently fast internet connection (broadband). Make sure you understand the use of linux and the design tools before you register for this course as a remote student.
We will not be able to help you setting up that connection since it is too specific to your particular computing setup and internet connection.
