Intel Compilers, Tools, and Libraries

Intel LogoIntel Corporation (http://www.intel.com), well-known for hardware technology since introducing the world's first microprocessor in 1971, also produces an array of software development products which are available for OSC users across Ohio.

Most of this software must connect over the internet to a license server at OSC. OSC must enable the license server to work with your workstation. Send e-mail with your OSC user name and workstation IP address to oschelp@osc.edu to enable your workstation.  The IP address must be tied to an academic institution in the state of Ohio -- OSC will reject IPs not associated with such institutions. You will need to set the LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to 28518@license5.osc.edu to check out licenses. If your local computers are behind a firewall, you need to open 28519 TCP port as well as 28518 TCP port. 

Please note that we have deprecated the use of the intel.lic file.

Documentation is available online at http://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/manuals.
