The Francis Tuttle ITS Department provides a variety of ways to perform work related tasks without sitting at the workstation in your office.
Each of the methods outlined below have their own advantages and shortcomings.
Internet Accessible Services – These are systems that are accessible from any internet connected computer such as the laptop or desktop computer you are using at home. Some examples would be Outlook Web and Zone. For data security reasons, some systems are not accessible in this way. An example of a system NOT accessible would be InfoCentral.

Connect to FT-Staff Computer – If you have been provided access, you can connect to a standard FT-Staff computer. This provides many advantages over the short list of systems available directly on the internet. Using this method, you will have access to our more secure systems such as Colleague, InfoCentral and others. This also includes access to your home folder as well as any shared folders you have access to. For this level of access, you must submit a request and be granted access.

Connect to Staff Remote Access – If you have been provided access, you can connect directly to the computer that is on your office desk. This provides access to any special programs installed directly on your office computer only. For this level of access, you must submit a request and be granted access.
