Software in Silicon Cloud (SWIS): VM access via desktop/xterm session - na action or output

Hi to All,

I've got my access to to SWIS https://swisdev.oracle.com/ , created my test virtual machine instances, but I cannot access them in any way - tried "start a desktop session" and "start a xterm session" logged in through various browsers both windows 8 and linux , but there is no output apart from popup "starting xterm session" with the name of the machine and green check . I read the SwinSi-guide.pdf and even install java 1.6 - no luck. What do I do wrong? any hints appreciated :-)

best regards

PiotrAF

    We have identified and fixed a problem in the SiSC lab that would have kept several users from starting an xterm or desktop session.

    The most successful software to use on your client systems is:

    Windows 7, Firefox 44.0.2, Java 1.8.0_73

    Although a unix based client can be used it needs to run a 32 bit OS. The SGD that will run on your unix client is only available in a 32 bit version.

    FWIW, Piotr has tried to use Windows 8 and it failed. We will test Windows 10 this evening.

    Hi,

    Sorry that you are having access problems with SWiSDev. Can you please email [email protected] with the following information

    • What is the browser you are using?
    • What version of Java (w/ build number) you tried?
    • Are you on 32 or 64 bit version of OS (Windows or Linux)
    • Is Java enabled on your browser? See if this page works: Verify Java Version
    • What is the name of your VM?

    We are also working on SSH access to the VMs we will help you with this once you contact us.

    Thanks

    Angelo
