Remote Server Access



Start by downloading MobaXterm. MobaXterm is a way to initiate a secure shell (ssh) session to communicate with the server. After downloading and unzipping the downloaded file,

  • Open the program.

  • Figure 1
  • Click on session:

  • Figure 2
  • Select SSH.
  • Type for Remote host.
  • Check "Specify username".
  • Enter your Seawolf Username in the box.
  • Click OK.

  • Figure 3
  • Enter your Seawolf password.
  • To start Virtuoso, type virtuoso -nosplash &
  • The window that results is that of Figure 4.

  • Figure 4
  • Now you can start your simulation.


X11 is no longer a part of OSX, therefore, you have to download it from XQuartz. Once you install and run the program you should get a window like Figure 5.

Figure 5
  • Type: ssh -Y your_seawolf_username@
    The application may ask you if you want to add the server to your hosts lists. You should type yes (all three letters).
  • Enter your Seawolf password.
  • Type: virtuoso -nosplash &

The rest would be the same as above Windows writeup.
