ParaView on envinf1

Connect to a frontend node and start pvserver:

On your local machine:

  • Install ParaView 5.6.0
  • Connect to server
    • Add Server
      • Host: localhost
      • Port: 11111
  • Under Settings / Render View set Remote Render Threshold to a small value (e.g. 1) to ensure remote rendering

The port tunneling with ssh is required as these ports are blocked from the firewall. If port 11111 is already in use by another user just try a different port, e.g. 11112: pvserver -sp=11112. Do not forget to tunnel this port with SSH too!
