Re: [HTCondor-users] Can I use HTCondor out of a HTCondor pool

In addition to the below, you may find the RCondor contrib package useful. See

"Remote HTCondor (RCondor) allows a user to submit and monitor batch jobs through a remote instance of HTCondor from his or her computer without having to install HTCondor locally. It does this by providing wrappers of common HTCondor cmdline tools that will use ssh to execute these commands on the remote machine. Furthermore, it integrates with sshfs to provide transparent access to data. It is written entirely in Bash. RCondor is an ideal solution for laptop users since it is lightweight and highly portable."

Is there any service integrated in HTCondo I can use, so that I just
need to submit some necessary information about a job, for example, from
a non-HTCondor node E to HTCondor node A?

ssh (or rdp) from nodeE to nodeA, scp/netcat your files, run
condor_submit on nodeA.

That is, you have to get the owner of the pool to let you run jobs
there, and you have to prove to nodeA that you're one of the people
allowed in. There are many ways to do it, e.g. remote login on the
submit node.

The way integrated in HTCondor requires installing condor_submit on nodeE.

Security policies on nodeA must be adjusted regardless.
