Khoros executables and dot-files must be downloaded from the Khoros FTP site separately, to comply with the copyright restrictions imposed by Khoral Research, Inc. The IISS team can assist you in downloading the files.

~/.cshrc to source
your copy of the file.
Once the dot-files are set up correctly, source the
~/.cshrc file. You
should then be able to invoke IISS by simply entering the command: iiss
(followed by optional arguments).
