Note: Off-campus access to CAEN’s Windows Remote Desktop Service will begin requiring Duo two-factor authentication (2FA) on October 3, 2017. A more detailed description of this change and why it is important can be found at our News Article.
The CAEN Windows Remote Desktop Service allows authorized CAEN Account holders to access remote editions of the CAEN Lab Software Environment (CLSE) for Windows over the network. It is intended to provide the same user interface as CAEN computer labs. The availability of some software may differ from CAEN labs due to vendor license terms, software compatibility, and performance limitations of the system. See the CAEN Software Listings for more information about which software applications are available using this service.
The CAEN Windows remote desktop service provides different software libraries for individuals who connect from on-campus or off-campus networks. The following connections are currently available:
- CAEN Labs 2017 provides access to the latest software that is licensed for student instructional or non-commercial research use from any location with access to the University of Michigan (U-M) network.
- CAEN Labs 2017 On Campus provides access to the latest software that is licensed for student instructional or non-commercial research use, and is restricted to network access from on-campus (excluding U-M VPN networks).
