I am having problems to connect live to a simulation running on a Linux cluster. Say that I have a simulation job 9876 running in one of the compute nodes of the cluster, and a pvserver job 1234 running on another compute node. The pvserver being used is the headless (osmesa) 5.7.0, as downloaded from ParaView’s website. I start by a shell in my local machine:
local:~$ ssh -XL 11111:node1234.$SERVER:11111 alves@$SERVER
From this point on, I am able to connect my local ParaView GUI (version 5.7.0, as downloaded from ParaView’s website) to the pvserver running on compute node 1234 of the cluster. Then comes the next commands:
cluster:~> ssh node1234.$SERVER cluster:~> ssh -R 22222:localhost:22222 node9876.$SERVER
But then it starts to print the following line on the shell, multiple times until the simulation is finished:
connect_to localhost port 22222: failed.
ParaView GUI doesn’t crash, neither disconnects from the pvserver neither outputs any further message.
Could you help me figure out what is going on? The simulation is built with Catalyst 5.7.0 (built from source) and successfully generates the post-mortem VTK files.
Thank you very much,
