9. How do I access data on a remote machine?

First, VisIt must be installed on the remote machine. Then, in order to access data on remote machines, simply type in the name of the remote machine in the Host field in the File Selection window in the VisIt graphical user interface and include visit in your search path on the remote machine. For more information, read the Distributed Mode portion of the Remote Visualization section in the VisIt Users Manual.
