Click Proceed if you are an authorised user (NTU staff or student). You will then be presented with a login screen.

Sign in with your NTU username and password and click Sign In.


You will then see the screen above. Clicking on Web Bookmarks will give you access to the web links available to you

    THis is really useful so thanks but I'd be interested to know whether the choice of the the staff only option on an iPad will give access to the extra facilities (especially the T drive and Cognos) available only to staff? As a more general comment it would be helpful if any limitations that a particular OS may have in relation to NTUAnywhere.

    Hello, I have downloaded Junos and can get to the Intranet pages and email, but this section is really unclear about how to access remote desktop:

    When you use the Junos Pulse app this also allows you to access other resources on the network. For example, if you have a remote desktop app installed you can access you NTU PC as if you are logging into it at NTU.

    I have downloaded a remote desktop app but have no idea what to do next - any ideas please? Thanks.

    Thanks Carl, I tried this but can't get to this stage:

    Select New Remote Desktop

    Tap on Connection Name and enter what you want the connection to be called for example NTU PC.

    There is no 'Select New Remote Desktop', just a + sign that asks me to add i.. PC or server, ii. Remote Resource Feed or iii. Microsoft Remote App. I tried 'Add PC or Server' but it hasn't worked.
