Subject: Re: [OMPI users] mpirun tries to ssh to local machine

Kind Reuti,

Thanks for your quick reply!

I'm afraid I didn't set a machinefile...that may be the problem: I'm
fairly new to MPI and SSH and I'm still quite confused even after
reading some tutorials.

My etc/hosts contains: localhost and modelstation
(modelstation is the machine name I was mentioning in the previous mail)

if I type hostname the terminal returns modelstation
