Normally, access to HUSAR is established via internet. The internet address of
A registration is required. The system asks for user ID and Password.
Applications can be accessed via:
- the Text Terminal Interface (Command Line Version) embedded into a powerful UNIX
shell. This interface requires some kind of terminal emulation software being installed (e.g. Telnet).
- the graphical X-Windows Interface of GCG (called WPI) requires additional X-Windows software being
installed (e.g. EXeedW).
- the WWW Interface called W2H, which was developed in our group, is more user
friendly. The WWW Interface requires the WWW browser Netscape 3.0 or higher. Please point your browser to http://genome.dkfz-heidelberg.de/.
The operating system of our network is UNIX. Knowledge of UNIX is essential to work with applications
like HUSAR when using the text terminal or X-Windows interfaces.
Even when using the WWW interface to access HUSAR some basic knowledge of UNIX (commands
to handle files and directories, email and file transfer) would be an advantage.
Users can find a short summary of the commands here,
in our quick guides or in our UNIX manual.
