Login to computer server of the Bioinformatics Laboratory

For some of the mini projects you need access to the computer server of the Bioinformatics Laboratory. To get access you need to install Putty and Xming. The instructions are given below.

Configuration PuTTY


  • Host = www.bioinformaticslaboratory.nl
  • Port = 22
  • Protocol = SSH


  • Sending of null packets to keep session active: 3600

Connection ? SSH ? Tunnels:

  • Enable X11 forwarding = on
  • X display location = localhost:0


  • ? Save
