We are providing the FastX service as PC X server software on a trial basis.
Since FastX suppresses communication traffic by data compression technology, you can use the system comfortably even in remote areas such as GUI-based application operations. You can use it from the dedicated client software (Windows version) or your browser. In this case, you can use it without installing client software.
※Client for Mac version and Client for Linux has not been tested yet.
Start your browser and go to one of the following addresses.
（Connected to each login node. The function is the same for all login nodes.）
You can also connect by accessing https://laurel.kudpc.kyoto-u.ac.jp/ or https://camphor.kudpc.kyoto-u.ac.jp/ (DNS round robin address), but the connection may be cut off depending on the timing of updating the DNS cache of the browser.
You can use GNOME desktop or terminal. To use the desktop, double-click "GNOME Desktop". To use the terminal, double-click "GNOME terminal". ("GNOME Desktop" is available only at laurel[1-3].kudpc.kyoto-u.ac.jp)
If new tab opens and desktop or terminal is displayed, login is successful. The password for the screen lock of GNOME Desktop is the password of the user portal (not the passphrase of the private key).
laurel.kudpc.kyoto-u.ac.jpin the "Host", the user number in the "User",
laurelin the "Name", and click "OK".
When one user uses multiple sessions at the same time (opens desktop or terminal), only one license is consumed on the same login node, but when opening sessions from different login nodes, the corresponding licenses are consumed. The number of licenses that can be used by one user is set to 3. If you try to open more sessions, a notice indicating lack of license is displayed.
With FastX, the session is maintained even after disconnecting, and the user can reconnect. However, please note that the session will be automatically deleted after 2 days without reconnecting after disconnecting.
To log out from GNOME Desktop, press the power mark on the upper right of the screen, press the user name in the menu that appears, and log out from "Log Out". You cannot log out from power options.
