Students who wish to work from home typically install MatLab and Maple as tethered software. There are many labs available late in the evening, so working from home is not required.
The easiest way install and configure tethered software is to bring your laptop to one of the Engineering labs and connect and authenticate directly via the engineering network before attempting to complete the install steps. Plan 2 to 4 hours and follow CAE instructions for installing tethered software.
After installing MatLab as tethered software, CS310 Students should make the following change to their license.dat file. Doing so will avoid the problem of insufficient Matlab licenses later in the semester.
license.dat file that your MATLAB (tethered software) uses and change the SERVER line as follows:
Deb found the file she needed to change at:
The contents should be changed to:
# Use the two lines below or set the following environment variable:
# LM_LICENSE_FILE = firstname.lastname@example.org
SERVER license-1.cae.wisc.edu ANY 1705
Students will have to determine if this is the correct file to change for their home configuration.
