Starting PuTTY

If you have saved a session, you can now simply launch PuTTY and double click the session which we called www.cmbi.kun.nl_TUNNEL here, see Fig 1. You will be prompted for your CMBI username & password. Now you must type echo $DISPLAY (see Fig 3) to find out the tunnel display name (eg localhost:13.0). This information will be needed on the website.
