UCI Gui to remote Linux Engine

I picked up Fritz 17 and greatly enjoying it. Anyone know how to connect a remote linux engine ?

Normally I would do something like ssh server.com "/path/engine-linux" that doesn't seem possible at least in fritz. Digging around google there seems to have been some options like HG Mullers connect and a program called InBetween on wayback machine. Though they seem fairly old and dont appear to work.

Tips or ideas?

Would be nice to be able to fire up a 16 core Xeon server for deep analysis and access via a local GUI.

'Connect' does not work? Is this a Fritz17 problem (i.e. does it work from the command line)?

Do you have a link to the windows and linux version? The link i found was broken.

Both http://hgm.nubati.net/connect.exe and http://hgm.nubati.net/connect are working links for me. I suppose those are the Windows and Linux version, respectively.

Thank you very much :) Was able to find usage here:

Is the source available? Doesnt work on Windows 10

\connect.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information and then contact the software publisher.

Strange. Is that because it is a 32-bit executable? (I suppose not, because then you should laso get it for WinBoard.) Perhaps the winsock library it links to is no longer supported.

So far I never released the source. I suppose I could do that (if I can still find it...).

IIRC you already posted a 64-bit version too...

=> gives also the thread which contains all info for successfully setting in up in 'alien' GUIs (CB).

Oh, I had forgotten all about that. I remembered the trick of taking the parameter from its own filename, but not that I simultaneously made it 64-bit. Thanks for reminding me!

The link is

http://hgm.nubati.net/connect64.exe

Please let me know if that also gives problems on Windows 10.

Works like a charm. Fritz is giving me problems but thats just Fritz. From xboard it works wonderfully, thank you very much.
