Remote Windows Access/VMWare View Help
Remote Windows Desktop Description
The VMWare View environment consists of a number of Windows virtual machines loaded with the same software as the Windows desktop computers in the MLH 301 CS Computer lab. Because the machines are virtual machines and not actual hardware, certain graphical, CPU or disk intensive applications may not work properly and thus may be inappropriate for this environment. Software that needs direct access to the hardware will also have problems.
The VMWare View desktop can be accessed from anywhere on the Internet. If you are off campus, you DO NOT need the UI Anywhere VPN service.
The desktops may be accessed by downloading and installing the VMWare Horizon View client.
Client Installation Instructions
The desktops may also be accessed via client software. This allows USB sharing. Most users will be fine using the HTML version of the desktop above.
The iOS client is available from the Apple app store. Search for "vMware Horizon view".
The Android client is available from the Google app store or the Amazon Kindle store. Search for "vMware Horizon view".
Session Termination Policy
Please log off VMWare View sessions as soon as you have completed your work. Idle sessions will be terminated, and all work may be lost. Please read the VMWare View Session Termination Policy for more information.
