ECE Machines for EEC 116

If you experience problems starting the tools in our environment, email the instructor or TAs and not ECE support since the tool installations are on the VCL group's server and are managed by the course TAs and me.

Logging in to a suitable machine

Logging in to a remote machine securely is done through "ssh". Since the waveform viewer requires the display of its X window, X forwarding must be handled correctly. Within the ECE department,  ssh machinename  should work. However, when logging in from a remote machine with a different configuration, a different command line may be required. The key is to enable trusted X11 forwarding. For example, when logging in via OpenSSH (ver. 3.8 and later), use  ssh -Y machinename  to enable trusted X11 forwarding. The default is untrusted with a "-X" flag, which will cause simvision to fail to forward the display.
