Remote Access Services
Last Update: June 6, 2011
Remote Access Services lets you connect your computer from a remote location,
such as your home, to the SLAC network. The type of service you choose will
depend on many factors such as cost, connect and transfer speeds, reliability,
availability, etc. You should examine the differences between them and talk with
local administrator to ensure a proper choice.
The different services are listed below.
Citrix/Windows Terminal Server
This is the
recommended method for remote access to SLAC Windows resources.
The remote client, using dialup or cable modem or DSL with a public Internet
Service Provider(ISP), connects to the Citrix/Windows Terminal Server farm
within the SLAC internal network. The processing of applications for
the remote client session is moved completely off a user's desktop and onto
the centralized server farm. Only screen, mouse, and keyboard information is
passed between the client and the server using thin-client technology.

Secure Shell (SSH) at SLAC
Stanford Network Connections provides information on various
means to connect to the internet via Stanford network services. Although the
these services may be appropriate to your needs, keep in mind that you may not
be able to access all SLAC services such as SLAC newsgroups, certain
restricted SLAC Web pages, etc.
