MISD provides a number of methods for UAS users to access their email and the MISD environment whilst away.
Webmail is available free to anyone with a standard web browser and internet connection. The website is https://webmail.admin.cam.ac.uk. This is a secure way to access your mail and offers many of the features that the desktop version of outlook provides. To increase security, please ensure you sign out once you are done.
Remote Access: Terminal Server
MISD provides remote access to the standard desktop environment. That allows you access to your files, folders and the software on a standard ACN desktop build. Access is via https://remoteaccess.admin.cam.ac.uk.
MISD levy a charge £150 to set-up new users, this helps to support the service and ensures managers fully support an individual's use of this service.
You should note that the client (your home) PC must have Java installed (http://www.java.com/en/download/), should be patched, up-to-date and also be running up-to-date antivirus software.
Remote Access: Directly to your work PC
What if you have specialist software on your work PC, such as AutoDesk? This won't be available on the standard Termanal Server that you remotely access.
MISD can help solve this by setting up remote access, directly to your work PC.
This will allow you to access all your files, folders and all the applications installed on your desktop. Your PC must be turned on for this to work. You can log in via https://remoteaccess.admin.cam.ac.uk. In order to log in, a license must be purchased from MISD at £150 each. The computer you are connecting from must have Java, and meet a certain minimum specification.
