Running icemCFD remotely

Tagged: ,

      Hello everyone,

      I would like to know if there is a way to run icemcfd remotely?

      I am using a home Windows machine with Xming (to enable graphical user interface applications) and also an office openSUSE machine, where icemcfd is installed and that has direct communication to the license server. I am able to run the program locally, but when I log to my machine using ssh and try running the application, I get some error.

      I am using absolutely no command line arguments, so I assume I am missing one or two here.

      Upon running the icemcfd command, I get the following error:

      2021/06/09 11:30:45   ERROR                                                                               some_big_number/0/0/0

                     Unable to retrieve IP for host my_office_computer_name.

                                     Host not found: my_office_computer_name

      I am not sure if some_big_number is an error code or part of license, so I am hiding it for now.

      With kind regards,

      Alija Bevrnja

      Are you connected through VPN to your office?
      What happens if you ping the hostname of your office machine?
      Open Dos Window
      Type in: ping (hostname of office machine)

      Yes I am connected to the office through a VPN. The ping works fine and I can work remotely, but I guess that port forwarding could be an issue. My PC is associated with a specific port behind a collective router, so in order to connect to it, I have to specify port as well. Now, ping does not let me ping a specific port, but using powershell's Test-NetConnection I confirmed that the office PC is visible from my home office with the last line reading: TcpTestSucceeded : True
      So I assume now that icemcfd does not know how to use the already existing connection between my home and office PCs, established through ssh.
