Sharing Files for Printing

If you need to print a file from your remote lab computer, you can download a PDF of the file that you can print from your local computer. When you go to print the file, select Guacamole Printer from the Select Printer options.

This will download a PDF of the file on your local computer.

Saving Files

To save files, you will need to upload them to a cloud storage solution, as remote file saving is disabled.

For faculty, staff, and RBHS students, you can save the files to Onedrive, which is part of your Rutgers Connect account.

For non-RBHS students, you can save the files to your Google Drive, which is part of ScarletMail.

For guests, you can use either Onedrive or Google Drive, depending on which options are available for your account.
