The remote desktop feature on your computer allows you to control your office computer from another office or from home. Remote Desktop allows you to use the applications on your office computer, and access your data without being in your office.
You'll want to follow these instructions on your laptop and/or home computer, not on the on-campus desktop computer!.
There is a risk that technologies that allow you to access your desktop may be exploited by others. Be careful to properly secure your desktop to minimize this risk.
Note: You will need to request IT Services to setup & configure your remote desktop connection prior to using it from home or another location. Please speak with your Manager to begin this request.
