A Remote Lab connection gives you full access to the remote lab computer, just like any typical computer experience. The start menu and desktop is visible and you may open any available application.

iOS Remote Lab Detailed Connection InstructionsDue to limitations of mobile operating systems (like iOS) using a Remote Lab is a two step process. First you must use the Remote Labs website to get the name of the lab you want to connect to, then you must connect to that lab with a third party Remote Desktop client.
Step One: Determine computer name of the lab you wish to use
Open your mobile web browser and log into the Remote Labs site. Select the lab you want to use.
You will ultimately be taken to a screen that looks similar to this:
On that screen, in the middle (highlighted in the image above), is the server name required for client access to the remote lab/application. Write this down or save it to your clipboard.
Step Two: Connect to the lab with a third party Remote Desktop application
Please note: UMKC does not endorse any third party connection clients. UMKC remote labs work with most Remote Desktop (RDP) apps. The instructions below are an example of how to use the free version of the Wyse Pocket Cloud RDP app. UMKC does not support Wyse Pocket Cloud and these instructions are subject to change. This example is provided to assist users in connecting to UMKC Remote Labs. Actual steps will differ depending on which RDP app you decide to use.
You are now connected! You may browse to the start menu and launch available applications. If you have any additional questions, please visit our Remote Labs FAQ or contact the IS Call Center.
