The simplest way to run MATLAB from the server is to download and install the Easy VNC program that we provide. When you open the Easy VNC program and log on to the server, you will see  MATLAB among the programs listed in the menu that appears when you click on the “IceWM” button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen.

You can also run MATLAB via SSH. Type matlab to launch MATLAB. To quit MATLAB, simply click on “File→Exit MATLAB” (Ctrl + Q) on MATLAB file menu or type “exit” or “quit” on MATLAB Command Window.

Please be aware that you need to use X-Windows to run MATLAB in graphical mode via SSH.

Note that you can run Matlab in text-only (batch) mode without X-Windows by typing the following command:

matlab -nodesktop –nosplash
