To use our remote desktop service, or any RDP connection to a computer at Edinburgh University, you must now (edit: from 07:00 on Wednesday 28 April) use a University VPN. If you don’t, you won’t get a connection.
If you already use the University VPN or the Informatics OpenVPN, carry on – RDP should work for you. You won’t need the VPN if your computer is already on the University of Edinburgh network – for instance in a computing lab or an office on campus.
RDP without VPN has been blocked for security reasons.
