MATLAB Remote Access Instructions Click here for off campus access Click here if using a BU network
Establish a VPN Connection Point your web browser to http://vpn.bu.eduhttp://vpn.bu.edu Enter your Kerberos user name and password
You can verify and control your connection via the tray icon on your windows task bar Your connection will take a few minutes the first time you run it but will instantly connect each subsequent connection
Download and Install X-Win32 Paste it into the dialog box on the download site: http://www.starnet.com/download/purchase.php http://www.starnet.com/download/purchase.php MIIDgwYJKoZIhvcNAQcCoIIDdDCCA3ACAQExCzAJBgUrDgMCGgUAMIIBVgYJKoZIhvcNAQcB oIIBRwSCAUNTTjogOTY5DQpOOiAxMDAwDQpQSUQ6IDEzDQpWZXI6IDE1Mg0KRGF0ZTogMjAw OS0wNi0xOA0KTmFtZTogQm9zdG9uIFVuaXZlcnNpdHkNClN0YXR1czogYWN0aXZlDQpFeHA6 IDIwMTItMDktMDENCkxpdmU6IDAwMDAtMDAtMDANCk5ldDogMTI4LjE5Ny4wLjAvMTYNCk5l dDogMTU1LjQxLjAuMC8xNg0KTmV0OiAxNjguMTIyLjAuMC8xNg0KTmV0OiAxOTIuNS4yMDYu MC8yNA0KTmV0OiAxOTIuNS4yMDguMC8yNA0KTmV0OiAxOTIuMTIuMTg1LjAvMjQNCk5ldDog MTkyLjEyLjE4Ni4wLzI0DQpOZXQ6IDE5Mi4xMi4xODguMC8yNA0KTmV0OiAxOTIuNTQuMjI0 LjAvMjQNCjGCAgIwggH+AgEBMIGnMIGhMQswCQYDVQQGEwJVUzETMBEGA1UECBMKQ2FsaWZv cm5pYTESMBAGA1UEBxMJU3Vubnl2YWxlMSUwIwYDVQQKExxTdGFyTmV0IENvbW11bmljYXRp b25zIENvcnAuMRcwFQYDVQQLEw5MaWNlbnNlIFNlcnZlcjEpMCcGCSqGSIb3DQEJARYabGlj ZW5zZS1zZXJ2ZXJAc3Rhcm5ldC5jb20CASowCQYFKw4DAhoFAKCBsTAYBgkqhkiG9w0BCQMx CwYJKoZIhvcNAQcBMBwGCSqGSIb3DQEJBTEPFw0wOTA2MTkwMDA1MDFaMCMGCSqGSIb3DQEJ BDEWBBQxzeWQZbkWrYE3b6E5OjK+kL7LMjBSBgkqhkiG9w0BCQ8xRTBDMAoGCCqGSIb3DQMH MA4GCCqGSIb3DQMCAgIAgDANBggqhkiG9w0DAgIBQDAHBgUrDgMCBzANBggqhkiG9w0DAgIB KDANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAASBgNFlbH23w8awxkdoSOf11ze4CueP+3zhg7U5OxxEINtNuIxw 5I0rvjwvyU+VrB1a8p/9piBpcexfcDKOgUW+px02tbgkR+Ka3x23Vn9MLz2iDY5KI10SRYru rpiqBlH/rrRu8DC13kLdonZUVu4N6hjaMkIzyaVF6p1kDv9r8CUE Copy the following key
Once installed, open X-Win32 2010 Select and download the first option with SSH
Select Add Folder and name your folder My Sessions. Select Browse and then select OK using the default location and then OK again. Select the folder you just made and click on Manual under New Connection. Choose SSH from the list and hit Next
Fill out the boxes using the following information (Items in red should be typed exactly as written) Connection Name: ENG-GRID Host: eng-grid.bu.edu Login: Your BU user name Command: /usr/bin/xterm -e /bin/bash -l -c "/mnt/nokrb/sge/etc/qloginwrap Password: Your BU Kerberos password Click Save
Now select your ENG-GRID profile and click Launch on the right hand side.
X-Win will begin the process of logging you on to a BU GRID computer. Notice how a signals computer is being used in this example. The computer being used is random and will usually change every time you log in. Now type your BU Kerberos password to complete the log in process
At the prompt, you have two options… -Type matlab to simply begin a MATLAB session that is linked to your X drive -To close MATLAB simply select File then Exit MATLAB and you can x out of your X-Win window. -Or type /etc/gdm/Xsession default to get a BU Linux workspace -Make sure you Log off from your Linux session before closing X- Win. Otherwise you will have to wait until the next day for your session to expire to be able to log on again. After logging in you will see a prompt similar to the one below with respect to the computer you end up getting logged in to. In this case it is still the signals computer #19.
To begin a MATLAB or BU Linux session again, start the VPN if you are off campus, open X-Win, launch your ENG-GRID profile, and follow the steps from the previous slide. Congratulations! You now have home access to MATLAB and other resources available through BU Linux!
