University of Bolton Remote Access (apps.bolton.ac.uk)
The apps.bolton.ac.uk website means that you no longer need to use VPN to access services that were previously only available on-campus. The website only works with Internet Explorer and Windows.
When students log on to http://apps.bolton.ac.uk they will be presented with icons for:
- Results Portal
- Microsoft Word 2010
- Microsoft Excel 2010
- Microsoft Visio 2010
- Maple 5
- SPSS v20
These applications will start in a “RemoteApp” window; that is, running on a remote server but in a single window on your home PC. You will need to log on again to connect to the remote server - please enter your username in the form firstname.lastname@example.org when the dialog box pops up.
