How do I access my faculty or staff computer remotely?

Brenau Remote Access

Note: Your work computer MUST be powered on for this to work.

Requirements: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome. Any browser that supports HTML5 should work fine.

Step 1 - In order to access your computer remotely, you first need to determine the name of your computer. Usually this is printed on a white sticker attached to the top or the front of the computer. If you cannot locate it, you can determine the computer name by clicking the DOMAIN drop-down at the login page. The entry in the drop-down that is not ""BRENAU"" is the machine name. It is usually in the format XXXX-YYYY (where XXXX is Your username or department name and YYYY is the 4-digit asset tag number). Be sure to enter your COMPLETE machine name when logging in -  (Example: "WHEELER-1234" )

Step 2 - Once you have this information and you are away from your work computer (i.e. at home or on the road), just navigate to and log into the system. Your username and password will be your standard Brenau NETWORK login credentials (what you use when you log into your computer).

Step 3 - You will then see two icons - one for Virtual Lab (which would log you into our lab environment) or click the blue plus sign to make a connection to your on campus work computer.  

Step 4 - You will be prompted for your computer name (Address field), username, and password to the remote system. 

Step 5 - You should automatically be connected to your Brenau computer and can use the computer as if you were logged on locally.
