RDS at D-ITET

ISG.EE provides a RDS environment that allows all D-ITET employees to access a session-based Windows server. This server hosts several Microsoft programs as well as some other software, most of it runs on Windows only.

RDS Connection

We offer several ways how to connect to the RDS servers:

Linux, MacOS X, Windows (Web Client)

{i} Myrtille is an open source Git project, based on FreeRDP. You can change the name of the destination server. This allows you to use it as a web based RDP client to connect to any computer at D-ITET (theoretically).
