INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTING TO YOUR MMS DEDICATED VIRTUAL MACHINE
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.
