How can I reach the nodes of a DEXTER cluster running Linux from my Windows laptop?

We recommend using VNC software to visually check up on individual workstations of a DEXTER personal cluster.

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing.

If a DEXTER personal cluster node runs for example SUSE Linux as the Operating System, we use X11VNC on the Linux nodes to be the server of the VNC connection. On the Windows laptop we use UltraVNC as viewer.

When you have a VNC connection like this you can work on each DEXTER node while watching the screen of your Windows laptop.

Basically this method makes your laptop a screen with keyboard and mouse, the work is done on the DEXTER personal cluster.
