Tip

New users might want to take a look at the Run section.

## Running NoMachine at PPPL¶

It is highly recommended to run OMFIT at PPPL using No-Machine, since this will make interactivity of the GUIs and plots more responsive than using X via SSH.

Follow the tutorial on the PPPL website.

Note that using the PPPL version of the NX executable may be required to have the NX connection working correctly.

The PPPL VPN is required to reach the NoMachine server from outside of PPPL. Note that using NoMachine through the VPN inevitably reduces the responsiveness of the applications.
