Guacamole

Guacamole allows Neuroscience users to access their Windows and Linux computers remotely via web browser.

  1. Email Ryan Sleeth rsleeth@gsu.edu and CC your PI or lab manager requesting access
  2. Log in using Google Chrome with your campus ID at https://guac.ni.gsu.edu and approve the Duo prompt
  3. Expand the tree near the bottom of the site to navigate to your computer
    • If prompted by Chrome regarding clipboard sharing click Allow to enable copy-paste
  4. Computers in Guacamole only allow 1 to 2 concurrent connections. If another user is connected you won’t be able to connect until they disconnect. Coordinate with your lab members to not step on toes.
  5. When finished sign out of Windows or close your Guacamole Chrome tab

Disconnection Types

Windows

  • SIGN OUT = closes open programs (via Start menu)
  • DISCONNECT = DOES NOT close open programs (via Start menu)
  • Closing Guacamole Chrome tab = same as disconnect

Linux

  • SIGN OUT = closes open programs (via the Gnome System Menu in the top-right)
  • Closing Guacamole Chrome tab = DOES NOT close open programs

Tips

  • Connecting to the campus VPN is not required. Traffic is secured via HTTPS
  • Closing Chrome is similar to DISCONNECTING
  • You can also disconnect using Guacamole‚Äôs menu (SHIFT + CTRL + ALT)
  • Computers only allow 1 to 2 concurrent connections. Coordinate with your lab members to not step on toes. When another user signs out or disconnects it frees up a connection
  • Servers are configured to disconnect users after being idle for 1 hour to help with concurrent use
