Connecting Using Remote Desktop (Windows to Windows)
This tutorial will show you how to remotely manipulate your campus systems from a home computer. This setup requires two pieces of software to be installed on the off-campus computer.
Note: Steps 1 and 2 should be executed on your campus computer. Steps 3-9 should be executed on your off-campus computer.
Steps 1 and 2 (Campus Computer)
Press the Start button. Search and select "Power and sleep settings".
Click the pull-down menu next to "Put the computer to sleep" and set to "Never".
Steps 3-10 (Off-Campus Computer)
Launch the "Remote Desktop Connection" program.
Enter the full hostname of the Life Science Network computer, and click Show Options.
Enter your username (prefaced with "ADS\" or "CHEM-ADS\" or "ICB-ADS\" as appropriate).
Recommended: Click the "Display" tab, then adjust the window sizing to comfortably fit your screen.
You will be prompted to enter your ADS account password.
Your remote desktop should now load. When you are finished with the remote session, log off the remote computer and log out of the VPN.
