There are three different types of remote access supported by the Department of Mathematics:
Mathematics Virtual Private Network (VPN)
The Mathematics VPN allows you to access restricted Math resources (as well as many campus-only resources) when you are not in a Math building. For example, if you need access to the Mathematics Intranet pages, you could use the Mathematics VPN to gain access to them.
Remote Desktop (VNC)
Using remote desktop, you can connect to a virtual Linux desktop from your Windows, Mac OS, or Linux-based computer. You can even connect from a tablet such as an iPad!
Shell Access (ssh)
Shell access provides you with text-only access to your account. This is a great option for those who simply want to run programs or scripts from the Linux command line.
