Configuring AppPortal Applications and Desktops for Android Devices

Introduction

Miami's AppPortal Applications technology streams applications to your computer or device, making the application appear as if it is running from your computer or device. This technology relies on Microsoft's RemoteApp and Desktop Services. AppPortal technology provides access to Banner, MInE, & Kronos, as well as access to Windows applications for Mac users and CSE 148 students.

  • If you are using a Mac, iOS or Android device you will first need to install the Microsoft Remote Desktop application.

Important note about saving PDF MInE reports
The default save location for files is in the Windows Profile on the RDS servers, but there is no mechanism to retrieve files from this location. When saving PDF versions of MInE reports, change the save location in the Save As dialog box, selecting either a local drive or a network drive.
