Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Remote Access for Cadence

Posted by: meppo Nov 19 2008, 04:24 PM

I am unfamiliar with Linux and don't use it except for running Cadence at a lab at school. The problem is that the lab is in a basement and I would much rather work from home. I successfully connected to the server with putty, but couldn't start Cadence because it needed an xwin or something. Does anyone know how I could remotely use the program?
