You can start the graphical user interface (GUI) of COMSOL on one of the login nodes of Euler. This can be useful to change your COMSOL preferences or to prepare a model or check the result of a COMSOL job. In order to start the GUI of COMSOL on a login node, you first need to establish an SSH connection with X11 forwarding enabled.

ssh -Y username@hostname

With username being your ETH username. Afterwards, you can load one of the COMSOL modules

module load comsol/5.2

and finally start the GUI with the comsol command.

comsol -np 1

If the COMSOL GUI runs slow through X11, then please have a look at the troubleshooting section of this wiki page.
