  • a remote desktop client for your operating system...

Please note

  • that fh-eberswalde\ is in front of your login name when registering, e.g. fh-eberswalde\xyz123 or is entered as domain name in the registration form! If you are only asked for a password in the login window, please go to "More options" -> "Use another account" and enter your user name as described above.
  • that only ONE remote connection is possible at each workstation! Please log off from the remote computer , when you have finished your work! -> (Windows10_Log_off). Disconnected sessions (when the remote desktop window is closed) are automatically ended after 10 min - documents that have not been saved will then be lost!
  • Overview of available workstations (the current state is only shown below if there is a VPN connection to the university network)
    If the VPN connection is established, refresh this browser window to display the overview immediately!


  • If the RDP connection file (.rdp file) is downloaded with the Safari browser under macOS, it must be renamed manually. Remove the ending .txt (point txt) and confirm the conversion to an .rdp file in the subsequent dialog. This step is only necessary after the download with Safari. Browsers such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox download the file correctly without any additional file extension.
  • When opening the .rdp file there may be a warning that the publisher of the remote connection cannot be determined or the question whether you trust the certificate! As you are already connected to the HNE network via VPN at this point, this connection is secure! You can connect to the remote computer safely.
