Accessing the CVL Remotely from a Windows Operating System

While working on a project from home it is possible to access the programs contained in the CAD and Visualization Lab on Campus. In order to accomplish this you must have a SSH client and a X windows server installed on your Windows machine. ECE supports PuTTY as our SSH client and Cygwin/X as our X windows server.


To download, install, and setup these programs follow these short tutorials.
