GateOne terminal for exam demo

I'm running Chromium on a Fedora 25 workstation. I tried to go to the GateOne demo on their website (which the Candidate Handbook suggests), but their demo won't load. I also tried it on my MacBook with no success

Maybe it won't be a problem in the actual exam, but it would be nice to see it working.

Thanks,

    You don't need to install Gate One in order to take the exam, but if you are wanting more info on Gate One, please check out https://github.com/liftoff/GateOne.

  • Hi.

    I couldn't load it neither...

    I've tried with several machiens and browsers and it didn't work.

    I tried to install it on my Centos VM with same outcome.

    I asume I won't be able to test it before the exam.

    Good luck.

     The demo is not responding. The name gateone1.ln.liftoffsoftware.com resolves to 162.243.200.115, and it is not responding to SYN packets. So either the LF has to stand up their own demo, or get Liftoff to fix theirs (or stop telling us to try the demo first ;-) ).

    Hi all,

    We are checking on this now, thanks for reporting it.

    Luis.

  • It's fairly annoying that prospective examinees can't test the software beforehand. I also second the suggestion that LF needs to run a demo GateOne instance.

    I put a comment on another thread about how to run and test GateOne using the published Docker container:

  • A few years back, I took the Linux Admin test when the LF was offering for $50 on whim. I think the quirky way that the gateone terminal responded was one the reasons I had trouble passing it. The least that could be done is to have a way that you could easily install it or have a demo running that you could use to get used its quirky responses.
