Help Connecting to Remote Services


When signing into the remote desktop service, the program will already have your username entered in correctly. However, sometimes when working off campus, you also need to type this in yourself. 

The proper format is UNR\NetID name. So, for example, UNR\johnsmith. You can also try adding "" to the end of your username.
