Steps for Remote Access
Before your beamtime starts
3. Submit us request for remote access with your IP address
- When scheduling your beamtime, submit to your host a request to run remote.
- Note that remote access can be allowed from a requested pool of IP addresses only and only for the time of experiment.
- Also, if you are behind a proxy or firewall, your IP address presented to us may differ from what you see locally.
- Run Check IP Address tool to check your IP and email the requested pool of IP addresses to your host.
- Provide host with a phone number where you can be reached during remote experiment.
Our beamline computers operate under CentOS-7, a free clone of Redhat Enterprise Linux-7.
We use Mate graphical destop as a faster alternative to Gnome3, the default desktop of
this operating system. For the sake of simplicity, other Linux desktops, such as Gnome3, KDE,
Unity, Xfce, Cinnamon, and etc., are not supported.
Shadow sessions establish additional connections to already running remote sessions.
They provide collective viewing/controlling of the same desktop. These sessions are
mostly meant for the GM/CA @ APS staff when there is a need to help users remotely.
Shadow sessions are not recommended for users with slow network connections since
streaming multiple remote desktops may result in a degraded performance. Be aware
that with NxPlayer, after opening the shadow session and connecting to remote
computer, you need to do Ctrl+Alt+DoubleClick (Cmd+Alt+DoubleClick on MacOSX) on
the running session icon in order to shadow it. See this FAQ
for additional details.
