Faculty of Engineering Remote Access Facility


Firga Access

Although the university annouced that students need to be back on campus we still have a requirement from students to access the Engineering resources remotely. Thus Firga has made 16 computers available for this need. See below instructions to access the computers.

VPN/Remote Access

Students and Staff from the Engineering faculty can use VPN to access resources on the Engineering building networks (such as desktops/servers/license servers etc) by using the Citrix Netscaler VPN. Please follow the instructions in this PDF to get going: Citrix Netscaler VPN Instructions

Remote Access to Firga Computers

Students and Staff can remotely use Firga computers and software by following the instructions in this PDF: FIRGA Remote Connection Instructions
A list that updates every 5 minutes shows current free computers. Please note that Citrix Netscaler VPN has to be installed and connected in order to open the link: Available Computers in FIRGA
