We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.

Jan 14, 2020 The Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection version 10 program in Macintosh OS offers many advanced features that can enhance your experience with remotedesktop.sou.edu or virtuallab.sou.edu All of these settings are available when setting up the initial connection to remotedesktop or virtuallab, or you can modify them later by clicking on the Edit. Get the Remote Desktop client. Follow these steps to get started with Remote Desktop on your Mac: Download the Microsoft Remote Desktop client from the Mac App Store. Set up your PC to accept remote connections. (If you skip this step, you can't connect to your PC.) Add a Remote Desktop connection or a remote resource. Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) for Mac is a useful way to work with Windows apps and resources. Even though you’re operating macOS, you can still access PC-style desktops from your MacBook, iMac, or Mac Mini. You can use RDP for Mac on any computer using macOS 10.10 or newer. Access your Mac using a standard RDP Client software. You can access NuoRDS Server using the standard Microsoft RDP Client for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android or any other RDP compliant device or software. List of supported features may vary depending on RDP Client software. Remote session is encrypted and safe.

Microsoft Remote Desktop, a free application from Microsoft, allows you to use a Mac laptop or desktop to connect to and work from a Windows desktop computer that you have RDP access to in your on-campus office or lab. If you aren't sure whether you have RDP access to a certain machine, feel free to check with ECN via our Trouble Report System:

Put simply, Microsoft Remote Desktop from a laptop or a home computer makes it as if you're sitting at the desk in your office using your computer's keyboard and mouse -- even if you're two buildings, two miles, or two continents away.

By remotely accessing an ECN-supported desktop computer and refraining from storing your Purdue files locally on your laptop or home computer, your data remains safely stored in your home directory on ECN's network servers -- which receive daily backups.

  • If you have a Windows-based laptop or home computer, Microsoft provides Microsoft Remote Desktop for Windows 7, please see Remote Desktop Connection in Windows 7.The instruction on the page you're reading now focus on the MacOS version.

You'll want to follow these instructions on your Mac laptop and/or at-home Mac-- not on the on-campus desktop computer! Before you begin, download and install Microsoft Remote Desktop free via the App Store to your Mac.(Please note you'll need to be running 10.12.6 MacOS Sierra minimally, to run/download this application from the App Store).

When connecting from off-campus, please make sure to Purdue's VPN (www.webvpn.purdue.edu) first, as seen in step 1.

Who can use Microsoft Remote Desktop?

A remote-controlled computer can be used by only one person at a time. As such, this service is intended for use only by those who do not share the same office computer with other people. A graduate student may use Microsoft Remote Desktop with the permission of their supervisor.

Every ECN-supported Windows PC which will be used remotely must be pre-configured by ECN before this service will work. Please contact us in advance; we will provide you with the value that you'll need in step #3 as well.

Connecting to the Desktop Computer in Your Office

1. Connect to Purdue's Virtual Private Network. When using a computer off-campus, this step is required. Establish a connection to Purdue's Virtual Private Network (https://webvpn.purdue.edu). For a description of this service, please see ITaP's VPN 'Getting Started' page.

2. Launch the Microsoft Remote Desktop application from your Applications folder. The appropriate icon can be seen below:

3. Once the application opens up, you'll need to add your specific machine to the 'My Desktops' list. To do so, click on New. A new dialog will appear. Fill it out as seen below-- making sure to substitute '128.46.xxx.yyy' with the actual IP address of your machine, 'username' for your Purdue Career Account user name, and 'Password' for your account password. Please note though that you will need to type either 'boilerad' or 'ecn'before your user name in order to successfully authenticate to your machine.

NOTE: If using the ECN RemoteAvailability website, please instead use the computer hostname INSTEAD of the IP. you can do this by appending .boilerad.purdue.edu to the selected PC name from a green box.

IMPORTANT

If your computername begins with x- you will use 'boilerad' prior to your username.

If your computername DOES NOT begin with x- you will use 'ecn' prior to your username.

Again, if you do not know your computer's IP, feel free to check with ECN via our Trouble Report System. Once you enter all of the necessary information, click the red circle in the top right corner of the dialog to close it out and save your configuration. You should now see 'Office PC' in your list under 'My Desktops.' Feel free to change the 'Connection name' of your configuration to anything you like. More specific names can be helpful when you need to set up connections to multiple machines on campus.

4. When you double click on your newly created RDP connection ('Office PC'), the following 'Verify Certificate' prompt may appear.

If it does, simply choose 'Continue.' Your Windows screen should then appear to you.

5. When you're ready to disconnect from your Windows machine, you may end the session in one of these ways:

- Click on the Start menu and select 'Disconnect.' This will end the remote session but leave files and programs open and running on your office PC.

- Click on the round red button at the top-left corner of the window. This will end the remote session but leave files and programs open and running on your office PC. If you do not see the Microsoft Remote Desktop application menu bar with the red button, simply hover your mouse at the top of your screen until it appears.

- Click on the Start menu and select 'Log off.' This will close all open files and programs on your office PC and also end the remote session.

Mac Remote Access

Updates for version 10.3.9

Date published: 4/6/20

Unicode mode allows extended characters to be typed using the Option key on a Mac keyboard. For example, on a US Mac keyboard, Option+2 will enter the trademark (™) symbol. You can also enter accented characters in Unicode mode. For example, on a US Mac keyboard, entering Option+E and the 'A' key at the same time will enter the character 'á' on your remote session.

In this release, we addressed an issue that created zero-length files whenever you copied a folder from the remote session to the local machine using file copy and paste.

Updates for version 10.3.5

Date published: 1/6/20

We made this update with the help of everyone who reported issues. In this version, we've made the following changes:
