Public install at WEST (WEST)

On the altair, andromede1, or andromede2 servers at WEST there is a public installation of OMFIT available. OMFIT can be executed by running:


We suggest aliasing or linking this script in your startup files so that this version of OMFIT can be started with the omfit command at your terminal. For example by adding to your ~/.bashrc file:

alias omfit='/Applications/omfit/atom/miniconda3/bin/omfit'


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

Use No-Machine

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

Note that connection to the ‘’ server is allowed only for IP addresses that are on a white-list (as are the GA servers).
