Remote Applications

The RemoteApp software ILR Tech Services uses provides secure access to a variety of centralized applications used throughout the ILR School.

Applications, like Student Data Center or FileMaker, may be accessed in one of two ways, RemoteApp Desktop Icons from your ILR managed computer and the RemoteApp Web Interface from your non-ILR managed computer

RemoteApp Icons will automatically appear on your desktop when you are granted access to the application.

  • To launch an application, just click the desired application
  • Sign in using ilr\netid and your ILR computer password
