GoToMyPC

WHAT IS THIS?

GoToMyPC is a remote access tool. When installed on a Roosevelt desktop computer, the computer can then be accessed and remotely controlled from any other computer with Internet access. More information is available here: http://www.gotomypc.com/remote_access/pc_remote_access

WHO IS IT FOR?

GoToMyPC is for employees with a desktop computer that frequently work off-campus and need access to software programs on their desktop.

HOW DO I GET IT?

To request a GoToMyPC account, complete the online form. Account requests must be approved by Deans/department heads. There is a yearly charge of $150 per license (each computer controlled needs a license).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

When an account is created a message with client setup instructions is sent to the user.  The GoToMyPC client needs to be installed on the computer that is to be controlled remotely. Administrative rights may be necessary to install the client.

During the setup you will be prompted for your Roosevelt University email address. You will also need to create a GoToMyPC password as well as an access key. Record these credentials in a safe place. You will need your email address/password to login to the GoToMyPC web page. You will need the access key to access your computer remotely.
