Can I use RDP or VNC to connect to my on-campus computer from off-campus


No.  RDP and VNC are blocked at the campus border and at the CoC level. There's a write-up at with further details. As per that write-up, you'll need to use ssh tunneling. We do not officially support ssh tunneling and so have not provided documentation, but instructions are readily available online.

For a complete listing of the ports that are blocked, please see
