RemoteApp and RDWeb Access @ Whitman

What is RD Web Access?

Whitman’s RD Web Access site allows for Whitman students to run specialized software on personally owned computers without needing to install the software. This allows Whitman to extend usage of applications outside of our computer labs, providing access to software that may be either incompatible with a student’s personal Mac OSX computer, or non-distributable due to licensing restrictions.
