Trial License Proxy Setup

The trial license of FDTD Solutions requires access to the Internet. The following steps set it up so this is possible. You must first set up X11 forwarding on your workstation before proceeding.

 login$ srun -p build --time=2:00:00 --mem=100G --pty /bin/bash
 node$ module load fdtd_8.12
 node$ fdtd-solutions

A dialog box will be displayed stating that validating the trial license has failed and ask if you'd like to connect through a proxy. Click the Yes button. Another dialog box will appear. Click the Manually Configure Proxy Settings radio button. Enter globus1.hyak.local into the Hostname field and 3128 into the Port field. Click the Ok button. FDTD Solutions will start.
