ParaView/Distributing Server Configuration Files
Server configuration (PVSC) files are used to simply connecting to remote servers. The configuration XMLs can be used to hide all the complexities dealing with firewalls, setting up ssh tunnels, launching jobs using PBS or other job scheduler. However, with ParaView versions 3.12 and earlier, there is no easy way of sharing configuration files, besides manually passing them around. With ParaView 3.14, it is now possible for site maintainers to distribute PVSC files by putting them on a web-server. Users can simply add the URL to the list of locations to fetch the PVSC files from. ParaView will provide the user with a list of available configurations that the user can then choose import locally.
