ECE Machines and Tool Setup for EEC 281

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; if not, type  ssh -Y machinename  instead. 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.

Setting up your unix environment

  1. Open up a new terminal

  2. Type 'setup cadence' (without quotes) and press enter

  3. Type 'setup designcompiler' (without quotes) and press enter

  4. The tools will work once you close this terminal and open up a new one.
