Remote Servers

The new remote servers have been in production for about a week now. We have scaled back and streamlined the software that is available through the remote access system. This will help to ensure that we are in compliance with licensing along with increasing the performance and reliability of the system. Those of you who have logged in have hopefully noticed that increase in performance and reliabilty.

Here is a list of software that is currently available via the remote system.
Microsoft Office 2007
Adobe Acrobat
SecureCRT (for logging into Nell)
Internet Explorer (Firefox has previously caused problems and so was not installed on the new system.)
SamMenu
Profile Backup Utility
SAP (for connecting to COBA SAP server)
Secure Shell Client (Software that will allow logging in to Nell and UNX1)

The installation of SPSS is still being evaluated. We are working with vendors to see what options are available to us to make this work. Keep an eye on the IR Update for any new developments.

As always, please contact us with any questions or problems you may have.
