Stallo desktop.

Welcome the stallo graphical login service.

This is an experimental service and might change without further notice

All you need to be able to use this service is a java enabled browser. Check your java installation.


Log into before you try to connect to the remote desktop.

If you are connecting from outside the UiT network you need to log into with ssh to verify that you have a valid username and password on the Stallo system. After a successful login the service will automatically allow you to connect from the ip-address your client currently has. The connection will be open for at least 5 minutes after you log in. There is no need to keep the ssh-connection open after you have connected to the remote desktop.


A java update released around Jan. 15th 2014 blocks self-signed applications. You must explicitly allow self-signed java apps from in your Win or OSX java security settings..

When you click the button below you should get a nice tiger eye here.


This service provides you with a simple but functional Linux desktop called XFCE where you can edit files and use graphical user interfaces. We have currently tested Matlab, Gview, VMD, molden and maestro and they all seem to work well. (maestro must be started with the command maestro -SGL)

Remark: This is not an attempt to create a full point-and-click interface to whatever you might want to do on the Stallo system, it is merely an effort to make it easier to access the system and run graphical applications without having to install any software on your local computer.


The default desktop size is 1024x768. You can change the size dynamically in the desktop settings: Applications->Settings->Display.

This service is powered by TigerVNC.
