Re: Progress bringing up tom4 and tom5
the idea of opening separate windows on your workstation is good if your
remote application needs to report stuff back to you in the terminal window
all the time it's running.
but if your application just needs to be started, you can use one terminal
and after the ssh connection, type the command to start the remote program
running and follow it with and ampersand (shift 7). this will put the
program in the background (disconnect it from the terminal process that
you used to start it up) and give you back a prompt from which you can
start up a second program. if it's also put in the background you can
disconnect the ssh session and use the terminal window on your workstation
to ssh to another control computer and start things up. and once you
get manually starting running then we can help you get this done with a
script that would let you start up multiple processes on multiple computers
with a single command (even run that script at a certain time each day
as a cron job).
