1 Connecting to the Remote Desktop Service What is the Remote Desktop Service? Connecting to a University of Greenwich Remote Desktop allows you to work securely on documents and files held on the University's servers from home or anywhere with an internet connection (including on campus). A Remote Desktop session involves logging in to a virtual desktop on the remote server and using software available on that server. This will be displayed in a window on your home computer which has its own start menu and other features of a normal desktop. You will have your G: drive and any shared areas that are connected at login from your workplace computer. You can open and save files from these drives as you would at work. The software available on the Remote Desktop includes Microsoft Office 2007, Outlook and applications including Banner and PASW. You will not have a NAL window for launching programs available on campus computers. Please pay particular attention to the Logging out instructions. Be sure to save files regularly to keep changes in case of losing your connection. The Remote Desktop Connection The computer you use to connect must have the Remote Desktop Connection client installed. If it is installed it can be found in the start menu by clicking Start Programs Accessories Communications Remote Desktop Connection. Or, on some versions Start Programs Accessories Communications Remote Desktop Connection If Remote Desktop Connection software is not in the start menu, it must be downloaded from the Microsoft website. This Microsoft web page is headed "Windows XP Remote Desktop Connection" however; it can be used on any Microsoft operating system. Setting connection options Once you install and launch the Remote Desktop Client you will see the following screen:
2 Type rd2007.gre.ac.uk in the "Computer" box. Important: - Before clicking "Connect", click on the "Options" button to modify the connection settings. These settings can be saved for future sessions. You will only need to follow these instructions the first time you connect. Under "Options" Click on the "Display" tab. You will see the following screen. Set Colours to at least 16 bit. If you set this too low, the Screen colours
3 will not be correct. Click on the "Local Resources" tab. What you see now will depend on the version of the Remote Desktop Connection that you are using. To continue configuring your connection click on the screen below which matches the one your computer displays. Image A (you have an "Advanced" tab.) Image B (you do not have an "Advanced" tab.)
4 Logging in and out Once you have configured the Remote Desktop Connection under options, click the Connect button. Login by entering your username and password in the dialog box as illustrated below. Important: - DO NOT tick "Remember my password" for security reasons.
5 If you have an older version of the Remote Desktop Client or if password is incorrectly entered, you will be presented with the Novell login screen (below). Login as you usually would (do not check the Workstation only box). You are now able to access the system. Important - Do not save files on the C: drive of the Remote Desktop as you may lose them. Save your files on the G: drive or shared areas accessed through the Remote Desktop Service. You can also save files to a USB stick or any other drive on your local computer. Logging out
6 When you have finished using the Remote Desktop Service it is vital that you log out correctly. Make sure you log out via the Remote Desktop "Start" menu. See the illustration below: Changing Your Password To open the "Change Password" box press the Ctrl Alt and End keys at the same time whilst viewing the main desktop.
7 Click "Change Password" to reset your password to another value. Accessing Microsoft Office Programs Office 2007 programs are accessed through a menu item as illustrated below. This menu group will not appear until the login process has fully completed (around 30 seconds after logging in).
8 A menu item unique to a Remote Desktop session is "Save Office Settings". Clicking on this will save changes made to settings in all Office programs, including Outlook. Configuring Outlook on the Remote Desktop Your account details need to be entered when Outlook is first opened from the start menu or taskbar in a Remote Desktop connection. Any subsequent sessions should not require any configuration.
9 After clicking Yes to Confirm Application Distribution follow the instructions below carefully. They indicate the details to be entered as well as those to be omitted. Unless otherwise shown, accept the default settings. The configuration screen below will appear when Outlook is opened for the first time. Click Next to begin the process.
10 Leave the Yes button ticked and click Next.
11 Enter your name and address (not your username) Do not enter your password at this stage and do not tick the box to Manually configure. Click Next when configuring server settings completes (the Next button will be greyed out until then). Enter your username preceded by staff\ in the User name box.
12 Do not tick the box Manually configure server settings.
13 Click Finish when the button is available. Outlook will now open. After completing the setup of Microsoft Outlook you will be able to access your University of Greenwich account. Should you have questions regarding the process of connecting to the Remote Desktop service or using the available applications please contact the Help Desk on Ext: 7555 or Last updated 4 November 2010.
