Windows Remote Lab Connection Instructions
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.
Please note: These instructions were written using
Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8. If you are using a different browser
or operating system the dialog boxes will vary slightly, but the
procedure will remain the same.
- Begin by visiting the
available labs and applications page and choosing a
lab from the "Remote Labs" tab. Click on
the "Connect" button for that lab.
- If lab seats are available you will be taken to a
second page with limited help content and a large
"Launch My Session!" button. Click
on that button.
- A dialog box prompting you to open or save your file
will pop up. Click on "Open".
- If this is the first time you have used Remote Labs,
you will be prompted to trust the publisher (UMKC in
this instance). Check the "Don't ask me again
for remote connections from this publisher"
checkbox and click "Connect".
- Next you will be prompted for credentials. Be sure
to login with your fully-qualified username (such as "UMKC-USERS\username"). Enter
your credentials and click on "OK".
- You may briefly notice a connection dialog before
you are connected to your remote labs session.
If you have not recently connected to this remote lab
computer there will also be a delay as your profile is
created. This is normal.
You are now connected! You may browse to the start menu and launch available
applications. If you have any additional questions, please
Remote Labs FAQ or contact the
IS Call Center.
