Subject: RE: AMBER: Problem with running xleap remotely

Date: Sat May 20 2006 - 15:43:53 CDT

The installation of Amber I'm using (Amber 8) is through

I have defined the path in my .login file as follows:

setenv PATH "${AMBERHOME}/exe:$PATH"

I am accessing this using the XWindows driver X-Win32. I have not had
running it in the past, so I assume that I have configured the SSH connection
correctly on my computer.

I am unsure of where the problem is coming from.
