To access Linux X11 resources - Matlab, Mathematica, Tecplot, Avizo, and COMSOL - from Windows computers, users need to have SSH Secure Shell Client and X-Win32 properly configured. Users will also need VPN client if connecting from off campus.

How to turn on X11 tunneling from SSH Secure Shell Client?

  • Start "SSH Secure Shell Client", go to "Profiles/Edit Profiles".
  • Select the profiles in question and/or Quick Connect, under "Tunneling" tab, check "Tunnel X11 connections".
  • If you start X-Win32 before "SSH Secure Shell Client", all X11 applications will tunnel through X-Win32. Make sure you allow that through the firewalls.
