I tried to follow these instructions today to make the Simulink Webview accessible:

controls@nodus|public_html > ln -sfn /users/public_html/FE /export/home/

But...I got a "403 Forbidden" message. What is the secret handshake to get this to work? And why have we added this extra step of security?

This link works for me: https://nodus.ligo.caltech.edu:30889/FE/c1als_slwebview.html. The problem with just /FE/ is that there is no index.html, and we have turned off automatic directory listings.

IIRC, this arrangement was due to the fact that authentication of some of the folders (maybe the wikis) was broken during the nodus upgrade, so there was sensitive information being publicly displayed. This setup gives us discretion over what gets exposed.
