Using remote desktop login to 126.96.36.199 (windows server)
Use program exceed to login to 188.8.131.52 (unix server jpnight)
Enter your VLSI1 login and password e.g. VLSI1\rmason then password
open at terminal window by right clicking you mouse and clicking on terminal program
run the VNC sever by entering: vncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 16
note: you can adjust screen size as desired by changing the -geometry parameters
when you run vncserver it will ask you to give it a password and will give you a port number you can connect too: remember this password and port number.
download vnc programs from web to your local maching and run vnc. Enter your
password and maching IP and port e.g. 184.108.40.206:3
This will get you into your vnc session which will be remembered as long as the server is not rebooted. If the server gets
rebooted you will have to start your vncserver again (note: it may give you a new port number as well)
Once on jpnight from the desktop directory run one of the training modules
You should start with module5a which deals with schematic entry using constraints
Note: you should regularly run ps aux to check if there are any orphan processes running and kill them if there are using kill -9 processID

The parts that seems to especially apply to ELEC 5808 are:
Sect 5 part a) Neither food nor beverages are permitted in the lab.
Sect 5 part i) Know: Where the nearest fire extinguisher is.
The number for emergencies. It is 613-520-4444 or just 4444 on Carleton phones,
