If the remote desktop features in a browser are not enough for your needs or you need a different remote desktop, start VMware Horizon View Client application. Instructions for installing the application on your home computer you will find further below.
Notice! For the moment, only staff can log into remote desktops from outside of Metropolia. Students cannot do so because of licensing reasons.
On workstations maintained by IT Services this client application is already installed. You can find it in the Start menu by clicking first All Programs, then VMware (on some workstations Virtual Machines), and then VMware Horizon View Client. If you install the application yourself by following the instructions below, a respective icon appears on Desktop. Start the application by double-clicking on the icon.
1. The first windows after starting the application displays the connection server listing. If you installed the application yourself, the listing displays only the server address that you gave during installation.
2. Enter your Metropolia user ID and password in the authentication window.
3. You will see a listing of the available desktops. Double-click on a desktop icon of your choice to open the desktop.
Here is how you can download the connection application to your home computer.
