The majority of the applications that you have access to in the lab are also available remotely through the Internet. The software is designed to work best with Windows computers but also works with Macs.
Before you log on for the first time you will need to install the Citrix Web Client on your workstation. To do this navigate to this URL in your browser:
You will be presented with instructions in the Message Center portion of this webpage with a link to install the Citrix client. Follow the instructions to install.
Close down all open Internet Explorer windows and open one back up.
In the newly opened Internet Explorer window type the following URL:
This is the address that will open the logon page for the remote access to your applications. Enter your user credentials in the appropriate fields and in the Domain field enter CAMPUS. Click the Log In button at the bottom of the screen. You can now pick applications to run on your local workstation.
A hint when working in this mode is to always leave at least one application running as long as you wish to continue working. Leaving one application running will greatly speed up the launching of other applications.
While you are working in this mode you will have access to your local drives as well as your My Documents folder. This allows you to work on a file in the Lab and save it to your My Documents folder and then go home and continue working on the file without ever having to save it to removable media.
If you have a slow Internet connection then you will find that you are better off working on graphic intensive projects in the Lab so that you can proceed at a normal working pace.
It is increasingly important that you save your work frequently when working over the Internet, as unexpected outages will cause your session to be lost along with any unsaved work.
