You can verify you are connected by going to the bottom right taskbar arrow and looking for the padlock icon next to the Cisco logo.
Next, search for the “Remote Desktop Connection” application on your computer. This is installed by default with Windows and can be found in the start menu.
In the window that appears, type in “cast” followed by the ISU Tag # on your computer and “ad.ilstu.edu”.
Some computers are named after individuals’ ULIDs instead.
The ISU Tag # of your computer can be found on a white barcode.
Finally, when you are prompted for credentials, select “More Choices” and select “Use a Different Account”. Then enter “ADILSTU\” followed by your ULID along with your ISU password. Accept or click yes to any prompts that appear and your connection should now be established.
If you are unable to connect then you likely do not have permission to or the computer you are trying to connect to is turned off.
When you are connected, your work computer remains locked and any activity is not visible to anyone physically present at the computer.
You do not need to log off of your computer in order to remotely connect. The computer must simply remain powered on.
