Staff Terminal Server

There are some applications that do not run very well on remote computers.  Windows Terminal Servers have been created for staff to run programs on the Cornell Campus networks from home.

Some of the Applications that work better on the Terminal Server are:

  • Spirion
  • Filemaker
