      This will depend on your connection to the cluster. If you have a GUI/graphical connection on your cluster, then you can run both simulation/project (.fsp) and script (.lsf) files. Otherwise, you will have to run your simulation (.fsp) file on the cluster from the terminal on the cluster. Typically you will have a job scheduler and you will submit the simulation job with your job submission script. See “Running Lumerical on your local on-premise cluster” for details. 


      Answers to common installation and licensing issues can be found in the Lumerical Troubleshooting and FAQ.
