Instructions for accessing Viking from Linux, Windows and MACs are here: Accessing YARCCViking.

The login servers are to be used for program/application development, testing and job submission only. You can run your programs on the login nodes but not for long periods of time (> 10 minutes) - this is what the cluster is for!


This is not optional, running your jobs from your home directory will result in your jobs being killed when started by the grid engine.scheduler.  (N.B your home directory may not look exactly like this but you should have a folder called scratch)
