  3. Web Browser methods do not require you to install software on your local computer.
    1. Connecting to Cat5 via a Web Browser (BETA) (PDF) — Similar to X2Go. Currently in "Beta" testing and only recommended if we can't help you get X2Go to work.
    2. Connecting to Cat5 via SSH from Virtual Computer Labs (PDF) — Connect to a virtual Windows computer, then use SSH and Xming to connect to Cat5. Possibly faster than SSH directly from your local computer.
