Setting up your environment

Begin by sshing to a machine with GT3 installed. Do the following:

Set JAVA_HOME to path of a JDK 1.4.1+ installation. This varies depending on architecture and the shell you are using. On Solaris with a Bourne type shell, you would do the following:
export JAVA_HOME=/l/j2sdk1.4.2
Set environment variable ANT_HOME to /l/local/packages/jakarta-ant/1.5.3-1.
Set environment variable PATH to $JAVA_HOME/bin:$ANT_HOME/bin:$PATH.
Change to directory /usr/local/globus.
Set environment variable GLOBUS_LOCATION to `pwd`.
Source $GLOBUS_LOCATION/etc/globus-user-env.[c]sh, depending on whether you are using a C shell or a Bourne shell derivative.
Set environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /l/gcc322/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Set environment variable OPTIONS to -Dorg.globus.ogsa.client.timeout=120000. This environment variable sets the socket timeout for SOAP transactions to 2 minutes (120,000 ms). The default is 1 minute. If you find yourself getting ``Socket Timeout Exceptions'', you should first check that this option is correctly set on both the server and client ends of the transaction. If they are set correctly, then you may need to increase the socket timeout to more than 120,000 ms.
