Institutional Technology

    Remote access to Campus IT Resources

    As part of Ringling College's response to COVID-19, Institutional Technology (IT) is transitioning to a "remote access only" support/compute model. All IT services including render farm will continue as normal. To connect your computer (notebook or desktop) to a Windows or a Mac workstation at Ringling College of Art and Design, you need a program called NoMachine.  NoMachine enables you to access campus computing resources while away from campus. This will enable you to run various applications such as Zbrush. The following linked  instructions will help you to connect Ringling issued notebook computer as well as any computer that you have access. Please be patient, we are here to help you. If you cannot connect to a workstation, please select a different workstation.

    Weekly Routine Maintenance Schedule (Sat-Sun 12am-8am)
    We perform routine systems maintenance on computer workstations as well as devices in the data center every week. Routine maintenance operations take place on Saturdays and Sundays between 12:00am and 8:00am. During those hours, you will want to save your work often and make archival copies of any files you may have open at that time. Maintenance operations during those hours can affect office and laboratory workstations (including workstation restarts with warnings), network storage systems (home spaces, web shares), web site servers, administrative systems, and email systems. Laboratory and office workstations perform software updates nightly and laboratory workstations restart every morning after showing a warning.
