CFD-Post can be run locally to post-process data generated in a remote machine (i.e. Linux cluster). The steps are: !) Connect to the Linux system an launch CFD-Post with the following command: cfdpost -server from the folder with the CFD-Post executable or with the full path to it. You will see the following message if the start is successful: ————————————- Running CFD-Post engine in server mode. A remote GUI can now be connected to the engine by running the following command, where the host name (###1) can be substituted with its IP address (###2) cfdpost -remote ###2 -port ###3 -viewerport ###4 Waiting for GUI connection… ————————————- The values ###1, ###2, etc. will be unique for your settings 2) Go to your local machine and open a command window. Find the CFD-Post installation directory (typically under C:Program FilesANSYS Incv192CFD-Postbin) and launch CFD-Post with the command cfdpost.exe -remote ###2 -port ###3 -viewerport ###4 substituting the ### values given in the Linux machine. If all ports are properly opened, the machines can see each other and the firewall is not blocking the connection you should see a line added to the output in the Linux session: ————————————- Connection arrived from host your_host ————————————- Indicating that the connection has been successful. After this CFD-Post will open in the Windows machine. In order to load files from the Linux server go to File > Load Results and then enable “Specifying Remote Server Path”. Then introduce the desired path from the Linux machine and it should load the model.
