To use the SE-racks on a Windows machine, you can set up an SSH connection. The following information needs to be supplied:
serack-XX.se.wtb.tue.nl(where XX is an integer number in the range [70, … ,74]; for students graduating in the MN or SE groups XX is in the range [70, … , 77], and [80,81])
TUE+part literally; replace
s123456with your own student ID number)
22(which is the default value)
It is useful to enable X11 forwarding or tunneling, if your SSH application supports it. Furthermore, you will need an application to display the tunneled/forwarded X windows. This will for instance allow you to see plots during simulation with the CIF and Hybrid Chi simulators.
For tunneling under Linux use ssh with the -X option.
Below are several suggestions for applications you can use. Note that you can combine applications. For instance, you can use SSH Secure Shell together with Xming.
Xming is the recommended X windows server to use, because it requires much less space than Exceed.
Running the simulator directly under Linux does not require installation of a separate X windows server.
You can use SSH Secure Shell as SSH client and Exceed for displaying X windows. If you do not have SSH or Exceed, you can find them on the TUE software installation pages. In particular for SSH Secure Shell and Exceed (Install only the Exceed part of the Hummingbird software, you don't need all the other parts).
Perform the following steps:
Profile Setting / Tunnelingthe option
X11 tunnelingshould be enabled.
Yesto the question related to Host Identification and enter your password.
You can use the following open source applications:
These four applications are open source. To get all functionality, you'll need PuTTY, Xming and either FileZilla or WinSCP.
A single application solution is UltraEdit, which has both SSH and (S)FTP capabilities incorporated. UltraEdit however, is NOT freeware. It also does not support X11 tunneling (which among others means you won't see any plots during simulations).
