To run an application on a remote machine

To run an application you need to connect to your remote machine using, for example, Telnet. You then change to the directory where the program is located and run your program.

If your application is a dynamically loadable file, use the cobrun command from the command prompt, in the form:
cobrun program

You can also open a remote shell from the Eclipse IDE from which to run an application:

  1. Open the Remote Systems perspective.
  2. Expand the remote connection where you want to open a terminal.
  3. Right click Ssh Terminals and select Launch Terminal. You might need to enter a username and password for the remote server. A Terminal view will open.
  4. At the command line in the Terminal view, change directory to where the program is located and run the program, or for dynamically loadable files enter:
    cobrun program
