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.
