Remote Desktop Services

The preferred method of remote services is through our Remote Desktop servers. Compared with other methods, the Remote Desktop provides remote users with an identical desktop experience to what they would experience on a workstation connected to the internal company network. There are two methods of accessing Remote Desktop services, our High-Port Firewall Rules, or our Remote Desktop Gateway.

These methods cannot be combined. Choose one or the other.

High-Port Firewall Rules

Open your Remote Desktop Connection Client application and use the information on this table to connect to the Remote Desktop server of your choice.

Login with your DOMAIN\user name in the ASHTON-GS\f.last-a format. Note that your MUST include the ASHTON-GS domain preix since the login uses Windows authentication which must specify the domain. Your login will fail if you try it without the domain.
