Faculty of Engineering Remote Access Facility
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.
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
