If your Windows computer is ITS-managed, Remote Desktop should already be enabled.
If Remote Desktop is not already enabled, set up Remote Desktop on your UAlbany work computer via these steps:
Enable your account to connect via Remote Desktop
View whether or not you have admin rights on your computer
Install the GlobalProtect VPN client on the computer(s) you will use to connect to your Remote Desktop-enabled work computer.
In the search box on the taskbar, type Remote Desktop Connection, and then select Remote Desktop Connection.
Click on the Windows Start button
Navigate to Windows Accessories
Click on Remote Desktop Connection
In the Computer field, enter in either your University computer’s Full computer name or IP address (Network - Find internet protocol (IP) address)
If prompted, enter your ualbany\NetID and password for the security credentials.
Direct connections (i.e., without the VPN) to Remote Desktop services from outside the University's network (off campus) are blocked.
