2.2 Logging In and Setting Up Your Account

As an example, the host name of the MasPar MP-2 at the University of Tennessee is

pulsar.cs.utk.edu

To log onto this machine from your current workstation, type

telnet pulsar.cs.utk.edu

If you have trouble logging in, send email to the system manager at the site you are using. In order to access MasPar software, you need to include

/usr/maspar/bin

in your path. You may also need to execute the following commands

setenv DISPLAY my.machine:0.0

and on the machine you log on from

xhost +pulsar.cs.utk.edu

so that you can use MasPar window facilities such as MPPE. ( my.machine should be the complete name of the machine you are working on, e. g. quasar.cs.utk.edu.)
