Remote Lab Access Best Practices

  • ABUB – Always be using Box! If you are working out of Box Drive while remote accessing the lab computer, then there is no jeopardy of losing your work
  • Always log out of the computer when you are finished using it. Logging out of the computer is separate from disconnecting. You need to log out first and then disconnect the streamer
