Using the Ingestor Console

The Ingestor Console, referred to hereafter as console, displays the ingestor's status. This procedure describes two console choices, a local monitor and a remote monitor.

The local console is a VGA monitor that you physically connect to your SDI computer; a remote console is a telnet session into the SDI computer from a remote workstation.

If you prefer to use a VGA monitor, refer to Chapter 2 - SDI Installation for installation instructions. You will need to acquire a monitor locally since the SDI is not shipped with a monitor.

To use a telnet session, perform the following steps.

1. Log into the SDI as root.

2. Export the display to your workstation.

Type:  export DISPLAY=workstation:0

where: workstation is the name of your workstation

3. Type:  (xterm -C&)
