RE: AMBER: X Windows for LEaP on SGI

Dear Akshay,
You will need to install an xwindows server on your windows machine if you
haven't already. I believe cygwin comes with a free X11 server.
Once you have an X11 server up and running so that you can view xterms etc
(see cygwin or your xserver manual for details) you can then login to your
sgi machine.
If you ssh into your sgi machine X11 packets will probably be exported by
default. In this case you should just be able to run xleap and the display
will appear on your windows machine. If you login using something like
telnet then you need to enter the command
setenv DISPLAY where is the ip address of
your windows machine. You can then just run xleap and again the display
should be "exported" to your windows machine.
The important thing here is that no special settings / flags are required
with xleap. As long as X11 exporting is setup correctly it should just
I hope this helps.
All the best

Subject: AMBER: X Windows for LEaP on SGI

Hi AMBER Users


I have never used AMBER before. I have set up AMBER 7 on my SGI Origin
machine. I am trying to use X Windows as the GUI for the Leap program. Can
anyone tell me the procedure for setting up the X windows as the GUI for
Leap program of Amber 7? I am new, so I will appreciate if you can provide
any sort of help.
