The college has a remote access facility that allows you to login to a virtual desktop that resembles actually sitting in front of a computer in college.
We now have 2 available options;
1 Clientless (HTML5)
The new upgrade for Remote Access has the ability to run without installing the updated client - it runs directly in your web browser!
Navigate to https://desktop.bsfc.ac.uk/vworkspacehtml5 and enter your college username and password - et voila, it will log you in via the web browser.
2. Classic (Client Software required) – currently set as the default
The clientless version of Remote Access is brand new and as such we haven’t made it the default – but in time we will.
The first time you use the system you will need to install the vWorkspace client software, this allows you to connect to the virtual service - you will only need to install this software once, Don’t worry, the software will detect you have an order version and automatically upgrade it.
The new version will be fully supported on a large range of mobile devices Windows Tablets/Apple Devices/Chromebooks/Kindle’s , pretty much any device except for a Blackberry. Information will be provided on how to configure various mobile devices/tablets with Remote Access, but for now please ask a member of IT & Technical Services.
We have left the old version on until the end of the month to allow a transition over to the new system – this can be accessed via https://remote.bsfc.ac.uk
