Hi Jonathan,


I will be in Boston on Friday and was wondering if you or one of your grad
students who has used Kittyhawk might have some time in the afternoon to
show me how Kittyhawk works on the Argonne Surveyor machine at ALCF.    Hope
to see you on Friday.


Best regards,

the kittyhawk mailing list and post question there.   You can subscribe at

This should not be too hard to sort out as kittyhawk on surveyor is being
used on a regular basis.  The easiest

thing might be to try and coordinate a time so that one of us can do it with
you via vnc session.

I believe that I should get an IP address.?


Have any of your grad students ever tried to get Kittyhawk to work?  If so I
would appreciate having a conversation with them.


Any information appreciated.
