There are several alternative ways of getting graphical access to the IT Unix systems.  There are two that you might find particularly useful:

  • The X Windows system lets you create windows on the Unix systems that appear on your PC or Mac desktop.  Windows for Unix applications are intermingled with windows for applications that are running directly on your PC or Mac.
  • Remote Desktop Connection is an application that runs on a Windows desktop.
