How to access Dedicated Virtual Machine

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTING TO YOUR MMS DEDICATED VIRTUAL MACHINE

Introduction

A Dedicated Virtual Machine (VM) is a simulation of a MMS Computer that can be accessed and utilized from anywhere.  A VM allows you to access to all network drives, systems, Outlook, and MDOC just as you would if you were in the office connected to the MMS Network.

While logged in to your VM, you can minimize the VM at any time to return to your regular computer and log on and off just like normal. It is best practice to log-off the VM at the end of your work day.
