I am attending a course in which the software (cadence) is installed on the university unix server. To have access the following instruction is shared by the course team. I am using a MAC system.
Steps to setup account for MAC users:
1- Open terminal:
%ssh -Y <username> @somename.universityname.edu
2- Create your session by:
%vncserver -geometry 1920x1080
3- Make sure to have checked/killed all your previous sessions (keeping one) by:
%vncserver -list %vncserver -kill : 100XX
4- Exit from the connection:
%ssh –L 150XX:localhost:150XX –N –f –l <username> somename.universityname.edu and type your password
6- Go to vncviewer and type:
This was supposed to fire up my VNCviewer and it was working fine until I forgot the password I setup in the 5th step. I tried to remove the password by
rm .vnc/passwd and later using
vncpasswd. It shows the following
Further (this time recording my own password) whenever I am trying to type the password (new one, and I have done it multiple times so I am sure there's no extra character) in it still says permission denied.
It would be really helpful if I receive your guidance on how to correct this.
