@HLRN: Start interactive job. If a lot of memory is needed, especially the fat nodes are suitable:
@HLRN: Load prerequisite modules
@HLRN: Start Paraview-Server on your fat node bfn####
Wait a few seconds till your Paraview-Server provides a connection, typically with the port number 11111.
@local: Start a ssh tunnel on your preferred terminal to access the port of the fat node via a login node of the HLRN
Leave this terminal window open to keep the tunnel running. Before setting up a ssh tunnel check if your standard ssh login works. If you are a windows user without a proper terminal we recommend MobaXterm.
@local: Start your ParaView client GUI and access your Paraview-Server at
Please note: the version of your local ParaView client has to be the same as the remote Paraview-Server. You can download various ParaView versions here. After calling "module load paraview" the version of the loaded module will be displayed. Currently it is 5.7.
