Remote Access for Students
To access a school computer from your home across the internet follow these simple instructions
Download the file "StudentRemoteAccess.rdp" from the bottom of this page and put it on your desktop.
Double click the file and you should be presented with a login prompt. Your school username and password will allow you to access the school computer.
If it appears that your logon credentials do not work, try using your school email address as the username. Example: firstname.lastname@example.org
Try this first: Download and install Microsoft's remote desktop client for Macs
Start the Remote Desktop Client
Enter the remote computer or hostname: welcome.avcol.school.nz:10101
Various other options can be set, however the defaults are usually fine.
If you have trouble with the Microsoft Client, you could try this one:
Apple Mac OS X
OS X Lion (10.7) and above
If you using OS X Lion (10.7) or later you should use CoRD: Remote Desktop for Mac OS X
