Getting Started

If you want to run your first jobs in less than 5 minutes, please look at the following link, minding the fact that it is not as exhaustive as the rest of this wiki:

Installed programs

We try to install your libraries and software as fast as possible, if and when something is missing just send an e mail to mesu or post a ticket on GLPI - Assistance Here is a basic list of the programs and versions installed

This section is dedicated to connection modes using ssh either from Linux/Unix or from Windows with some advanced features. I will try to introduce some connection softwares that are pretty nice tools especially for those using Windows.
