The document explains the procedure for using AAT for WAS on a Linux machine through a remote connection from a Windows machine. The procedure involves starting the X server on the Win PC and connecting to the remote WAS Linux server. This will allow us to assemble and deploy J2EE applications remotely on the Linux server.
1.2 Target Audience
Web designer, Java programmer and System Administrator
 Cygwin/X User’s Guide
 IBM WAS, Version 4.0.x Information Center
2 AAT usage procedure
2.1.1 Cygwin/X setup
*Download the Cygwin/X setup
*Follow the Installing Cygwin/X procedure
For the current doc, Local Package Directory: C:\cygwin
It is necessary to select the xorg-x11-base package during the setup
It is optional to select the inetutils package (for telnet) and openssh package (for ssh)
2.1.2 PuTTY setup
Download the PuTTY client
2.2 Steps to start AAT
2.2.1 Start the X server
This starts the X server and an X terminal window pops up.
2.2.2 Connect to remote server using PuTTY
Enable X11 forwarding and define X display location from Connection->SSH->X11
Begin SSH connection on port 22 by entering the IP address of WAS Linux Server, and click on ‘Open’
Enter the login details in the new window
We are now connected to the remote server using PuTTY!
2.2.3 Start AAT
Enter the following commands in the terminal
This will start the IBM WAS AAT
2.3 Steps to exit AAT
2.3.1 Exit AAT
Use File->Exit to close the AAT
2.3.2 Close the remote connection
Use ‘exit’ command on the terminal to close the connection
2.3.3 Shutdown the X server
Right-click on the X icon in the taskbar and select ‘Exit’ and
click on ‘Exit’ to shutdown the X server.
We have used Cygwin/X and PuTTY to start/stop the AAT on the WAS Linux from our Win PC.
Digg it! Redd-it!
It all sounds Geek to me! [Gautam Arora]
