Default Fluent cases in parallel across multiple machines

Hi guys, today I have a question on running Fluent in parallel across multiple machines.

I have run it in -t2 mode on a single PC with dual Cpu's...but unfortunately the unsteady cases that I am running still take too long.

I have four 3.4Ghz P4/2Gb machines available.

Here are some of my questions:

1) Do I have to copy the case and dat files onto each computer 2) Do I need to start Fluent on each computer?

Any tips/advice would be appreciated!

Regards Riaan

NO

NO, just one will do.

Ok, so I managed to get the network guys to unblock the Fluent network pop-ups that got blocked by the Firewalls.

How do I start Fluent across 2 Windows XP machines? Do I need to specify IP adress?

Start Fluent in one machine and the start spawning nodes. Refer to the user manual for more information.
