Windows remote access for research
Various Windows workstations that reside in Aalto University’s network can be used remotely via a Remote Desktop Gateway. Possible workstations include Aalto Research Workstations, stand-alone Aalto workstations, and PCs in closed laboratory networks. Secure connections are used in all communications between clients, gateway systems, and PCs that are accessed remotely.
Remote use is built-in in the Aalto Research Workstation concept. If you are using one please check the instructions from here: https://www.aalto.fi/en/services/taking-a-remote-connection-in-use-on-a-windows-research-workstation-remote-desktop
Remote access is also available both for stand-alone Aalto PCs and workstations in closed laboratory networks. To get remote access to these, please create a service request to [email protected] where you specify these things:
- Topic: Windows remote access for non-managed workstation
- list the email addresses of the users needing remote access
- Note: If there is an existing Active Directory group of these people, that can be used too
- list the IP (Internet Protocol) addresses of the computers that need to be accessed.
- These computers will need a static IP address allocation and they will receive one if they don’t already have one.
We will provide you with an additional guide on how to configure remote access at the workstation side. You will need admin access to the target systems for this configuration.
Taking a remote connection in use on a Windows research workstation (Remote Desktop)
You can open access for your own Windows research workstation via a remote log-in, from your own home computer, for example. The traffic of the remote connection is encrypted, so using it is safe.
