about connecting remotely

With remote access you can connect to an AAU computer from the internet or from another location on AAU. You can, e.g., use all programs and files on your work computer from your private computer at home.

To get access to remote access, you must have a legitimate reason, that is, the device that you want remote access to, is necessary for you to do your work. This could, for example, be due to a license or special hardware on the specific computer. 

If you meet the above requirements, you can contact Support@its.aau.dk with a request, and we will then help you set up remote access.
