Looking for the Windows instructions? Go to Accessing MATLAB’s cluster GUI from a Windows Computer instead.
Before you start, you will need:
- A cluster account. If you don’t have one, request one here.
- XQuartz. If you don’t have XQuartz, you can download it here.
Start a terminal window by going to Finder-> Applications-> Utilities-> Terminal
To connect to the cluster, type the following command in the terminal window:
ssh -Y Your_UTLN@cluster6.uit.tufts.edu (Replacing Your_UTLN with your actual UTLN)
You will be prompted for your password. Enter your Tufts password (the password will not display when you type it)
In order to start Matlab using the graphical use interface, you will need to type the following commands (one after the other):
module load matlab
bsub -Ip -q int_public6 matlab
Your should see the MATLAB loading image appear on your screen.
Once MATLAB is done loading, your screen should look like this:
You now have access to the GUI for MATLAB
