startClient <hostname> <port> [<my-address>]
This command makes the current process a parallel training client and creates a connection to a server. hostname is the host name (such as "vim.boltz.cs.cmu.edu") or the IP address (such as "126.96.36.199") of the server machine. port is the port on which the server process is listening.
Ordinarily, the name of the current machine, which is passed to the server, will be determined by using the gethostname call. If my-address is specified, it will override that. This may be useful if a machine is attached to multiple networks.
To connect to a server on port 6789 on the current machine:
lens> startClient localhost 6789
