Depending on the app, I think you can specify the Photon server
to attach to.
e.g. helpviewer -s//4/dev/photon
This would get the app to run localy and display on node 4.
That doesn’t sound like what Augie needs?
See further down for suggestion:

If Photon is already running on the machine, you could connect to it
If it’s not running you could connect via ditto and start it and then
If the Photon app starts other processes will they get started on
laptop or on the other system?
If the Photon apps runs on the “remote” node, yes they will.
Basically, I would like it to be as if the app was started on the
without display. Is this possible?
I don’t need the displays to be on the laptop.
If you want the display to be on the laptop try:
on -n PhotonApp
on -f PhotonApp.
Hi Mario and Thanks.
If I want to to run everything on the remote node is there a way to do
Or did I miss something?
Is Photon always running on the machine?
Can you describe in greater details what is it exactly you
want to do. Do you need to interface to that program or
just launch it?
This is a stand alone system in the nose of an aircraft. It has a video
card but no display, no keyboard and no mouse.
We need to start our Data Acquisition System every time the system starts.
I know I can have the system boot up into photon and run an app without
having to do any user input (no login). Turn key system is the description
used for these types of systems.
Sometimes there will be a scientist on the airplane using a laptop to look
at the data.
So we have one instance of the software running on the node in the nose and
acquiring the data (acquisition mode).
There is also the laptop, on which we need to run another instance of the
software in playback mode.
If I can run one instance of the software on the nose node with the displays
on the laptop, then this is also acceptable.
Does this clarify a bit what I’m trying to do?
In any case, I would like to know what all my options are so we can pick
what best fits this application?
