X Terminal Boot Servers
Lionel Cons CN/DCI
A ``boot server'' is a machine that provides the following services:
Three new machines have been configured as X terminal boot servers:
[220.127.116.11] (CN, in the
Computer Center), and sunecp05
[18.104.22.168] (ECP, building
11). These machines have a similar configuration and offer the same
version of the X terminal software. New servers of this kind will be
announced in the newsletters and in the cern.xterm newsgroup.
X terminal users belonging to a particular group or experiment may have a dedicated boot server. Otherwise users should use the boot server that is geographically closest to their office.
For more information on these servers and on the X terminal support at CERN, please read the ``CERN X Terminal Guide'', available at the UCO or in the World-Wide Web.
