Remote Access Connection

We use VMware virtual desktop software to access our GIS lab environment remotely.  The latest VMWare client download is available via PioneerWeb.  Log in to PioneerWeb and click on the Resources tab.  Then locate VMware Virtual Desktop Client under the Software Download section of the page. At the VMware web page, select the client for your operating system, download and install.

The virtual machine environments are currently "non-persistent" which means that any customization you do to the desktop environment will be lost when logging out or disconnecting.
