Remote Access Humanities 6421 Art Lab

Instructions to remote in to the Windows 10 PCs at the Humanities 6421 Art Lab, via Microsoft Remote Desktop.

macOS Instructions

- Follow the instructions here to download the GlobalProtect VPN, and here to configure it and sign in
- Once connected to the VPN, install Microsoft Remote Desktop by clicking here (allow the page to open the App Store) and proceed to download it
- Launch Remote Desktop, select the "+" icon on the upper left, -> "Add PC", and enter one of the following 18 PC name addresses into the "PC name" field before selecting "Add":
       PCNAME.ad.education.wisc.edu where PCNAME is to be replaced with any of the following 18 PC names: Art-Lab01 through Art-Lab18   
- You should now see this PC listed in your "PCs" tab view; double-click it to begin connecting.  Enter your full NetID email and password to sign in to the PC
       * Please note: only one user can be logged in to a single PC at a time.  You will be warned if another user is signed on before you can finish logging in, at which point the other user would have the option of declining your login or signing out (no action on their end signs them out automatically after 30 seconds)
       * Your first-time login to any of the PCs in the lab will take a little longer then subsequent logins to the same PC
- Do not save any files locally to this PC.  Rather, use a cloud storage service such as Box or your UW linked Google Drive to save files.  Box storage is (currently) capped at 50GB, however Google Drive storage is (currently) unlimited
       - If you are having problems allocating cloud storage space, consider moving files down to your personal device to help clear up space
- When you are finished with your session, please sign out of the PC before closing your remote session window.  Do not power off the PC
