UNIX Workstations

A number of SUN/SPARC workstations and X-terminals for general MIDAS use are located in the basement. They run UNIX and are configured with the X11 window system. You can login by giving the Userid/Password allocated to you. When working in the ESO X11 environment, it is necessary to point the cursor on the X11 OSF/Motif window in question to get access to it. Several MIDAS sessions may be run on a workstation at the same time using the parallel option when starting MIDAS with the inmidas command. Different MIDAS unit numbers can also be given specified on the command line.
