Spartan is available on nscc, all seven PCs in the schupf lab, and on all

wet lab imaged macs in Keyes.Do not use spartan04 on the macs in the schupflab,

instead use spartan from the application window. These macs run spartan remotely from iris13 over

an X windows connection. Under Mac 10.5.6 you may need to alter the

permissions with X11. Fire up X11, pull down the X11 menu and select

preferences, then under the security tab, allow connection from the network:

source $MM32000ROOT/mm32000/mm32000.cnf
 

An excellent resource for Varian Vnmr(j) can be found here.

If vnmrJ does not start correctly, close it, open a terminal and delete the lock file:

rm vnmrsys/lock*
