As Midas supports remote frontend(s), the method to connect the frontend to the backend is through a daemon mserver providing the necessary interface at the backend computer for accepting the frontend connection. This client requesting connection to a particular Midas experiment, will have to provide arguments such as:

  • The backend node name to which it wants to connect
  • The name of the Midas experiment to connect
  • The port through which it wants to connect (optional)

Undesired nodes can be prevented from connecting to the backend by using the -a argument of the Midas server (mserver). This can provide mserver with a list of clients nodes allowed to connect to any experiment on this backend node.
