How to request:
Accessing the TechAnywhere service requires the VMware Horizon client. This client is available for Windows and macOS desktop operating systems and for iOS and Android mobile devices.
For personally owned devices, installers for the VMware Horizon Client can be downloaded from https://www.vmware.com/go/viewclients. Unless required for your device, please do not select the UWP package. After installing the client, you will need to supply the name of a server to connect to. This will be techanywhere.tntech.edu.
Detailed installation instructions can be found here: Remote Computer Lab Access through the VMWare Horizon Client
For University owned devices, you can request the VMware Horizon client be installed (or updated) on your system via the I.T. Help Desk or your ACT Tier 2 support representative.
Do note that any changes you make in this environment will be lost at the end of your session. Save any files you wish to retain after your session ends to your LabDrive storage, Office 365’s OneDrive, or to removable media (such as a flash drive).
