Remote Desktop Gateway (RD Gateway)
RD Gateway is a safe way for UMSL Faculty and Staff to connect to your MS Windows computer at work from anywhere in the world as long as you are connected to the Internet and without the need to connect to a separate VPN client.
RD Gateway secures the connection by adding a layer of TLS encryption.
Step 1: Find the name of your Windows workstation:
Go to Windows search bar and type "Computer Name" and hit enter.
Take note of the Computer Name (Windows 7) or PC name (Windows 10). Remember to add .stl.umsl.edu to the end per instructions in the box below.
Step 2: Run or install your Microsoft Remote Desktop Client:
Windows computers already have a Remote Desktop Client, all you have to do is search for it. Macs, IOS devices (iPhones/iPads) and Android devices need the Microsoft RDP app installed.
The Remote Desktop client will need to be configured to use rdp.umsl.edu as the Gateway hostname.
