1.1 access to your remote text terminal
1.1.1 require credentials
email the VDC sysadmin to provide credentials and get your remote text terminal prepared.
- host: crsp.vdc.univie.ac.at
- user: your username
- password: your password
If working from home or elsewhere but from the institute's PC lab (room #6.644) you have to establish a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to Uni first (see ZID/VPN).
If working from Windows, you might need to install an SSH-client (like PUTTY) to use Secure Shell (SSH) to connect to your terminal. Accept the server key.
Also see ZID's explanation
1.1.4 usage of a terminal
Now you work remotely and use the remote host's command line (which is the bash shell, don't type the beginning "$", which is the prompt):
the midnight-commander (mc) provides a built-in editor mcedit (exit it with Alt+0)
$ mcedit ts_samp7.rqt
e.g. use ts_print to process a requirementfile ts_samp7.rqt and get the output ts_samp7.out:
$ ts_print ts_samp7.rqt
use mc / mcedit to look into ts_samp7.out:
$ mcedit ts_samp7.out
$ crsp_print /d1 /var/crsp/2019-07/crspdata/cmz201807
1.1.5 download the results onto your desktop / laptop
use an SFTP client like CyberDuck to download the results (e.g. ts_samp7.out) onto your desktop for further processing. Provide your SSH credentials:
Please read some manuals to gain experience with the ts_sampleX.rqt files in your home directory
