Step 1: Install dependencies

On windows

To be able to login onto testbed resources via SSH on Windows, a full installation of PuTTY is required (including putty, pageant and plink). This can be easily done by using the Windows MSI Installer. On OS X and Linux, jFed will use the native SSH-client.

On Linux

On Linux, you need to install a recent version of Java 14. We recommend you follow these instructions.
For Windows and OS X, a Java-installation is included in jFed.


No manual dependencies!

Step 2: Install jFed

Go to the downloads-page, and download the jFed installer for your operating system.

We provide installers for Windows, OS X, and Linux (.DEB and .RPM). During the installation, you can choose which components to install.

Step 3: Start jFed

You can now start jFed on your computer.

Step 4: Consult the documentation

We recommend that you read through the following documentation:
