Performance is heavily dependent on your internet connection. 100 Mbps is the minimum recommended speed, but your experience will benefit from a faster connection.

Sharing your Internet connection with streaming services like Netflix, online gaming services, and peer-to-peer file sharing services will significantly decrease Remote Labs performance.

When you are logged into a computer through Remote Labs, it is recommended you open and save files to your OneDrive account.

In order to connect to the Remote Lab Service, you must first connect your Student VPN connection. This ensures that the connection is encrypted. This means all communications from your computer to the Remote Labs servers are encrypted, making it difficult for someone to hijack the session or view data.
