Data Therapy Week – 06 : Introduction to HPC Resources
Friday, April 21st at 10:00 am in BioPharm 203.
- BBC cluster and it's different nodes
- How to open a graphical terminal to display (pdf and image files)
- In the cluster working directory (or in Home directory), using a terminal type: python -m SimpleHTTPServer
- In a new terminal using your PC/lap-top run: ssh -NL 8000:localhost:8000 <user_name>@bbcsrv3.biotech.uconn.edu , and leave the terminal window open.
- Then open a browser window in your computer and type: http://localhost:8000 to view your working directory and to open pdf and image files.
- Data transfering
