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



Example with FreeRDP (version 2.0.0 or newer):

  • Connect to https://worli.ee.ethz.ch/rdweb

  • Login with your nethz credentials: "d\USERNAME"
  • Downlaod the rdp file to a location you remeber and name it SERVERNAME.rdp (for example vela.rdp)
  • Use the SERVERNAME.rdp file in the command below:
  • xfreerdp SERVERNAME.rdp /gu:USERNAME /gd:d /u:USERNAME /d:d

Users with ISG.EE managed Linux workstations have the option to use the SEPP package FreeRDP-2.0.0.
