Setting Up Multi-Factor Authentication

To help Goucher’s e-mail and other data be more secure, Information Technology will be implementing changes to how you log on to your email and to the Office 365 portal.   Soon, we will be implementing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) when logging into any Microsoft application.

Other than the added security that comes from adding MFA to your account, there will be other advantages:

  • Requests to change your password will be moved from 90 days to 180 days
  • You will no longer need to call the Help Desk to reset passwords on department/shared accounts

Note: Please be aware that these changes will only affect Office 365 applications (i.e. Outlook) at this time. You will not need to log in to other applications (i.e. Canvas, UltiPro, Zoom, etc.) with this new method.

The following apps support modern authentication:

  • The native Mail app on iOS 11.x+
  • Outlook on iOS version 10.x and greater
  • Outlook on Android

If you run into any problems, make sure you have the latest version installed. Then uninstall and reinstall to see if that might help.

While we do not anticipate this change to occur until the end of the semester to minimize disruption to the community, you can prepare now for these changes by doing the following:

Method 1: Microsoft Authenticator App

  1. Visit the link https://aka.ms/mysecurityinfo and sign in with your Office 365 username ([username]@goucher.edu) and password.
  2. From the Security info page, click Add Method then select Authenticator App.
  3. Then click the Add button.
  4. You will then be prompted to download the app to your phone. From your phone, launch the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
  5. Search for and download the Microsoft Authenticator app. Once downloaded, click Next on the Microsoft Authenticator window on your computer. Then click Next again.
  6. Open the Microsoft Authenticator app and select to allow notifications (if prompted).
  7. Select Add Account from the Customize and control icon (3 vertical dots) in the upper-right corner.
  8. Then select Work or school account (Android) or Scan a QR Code (iPhone).
    NOTE: If this is the first time setting up the Microsoft Authenticator app, you might receive a prompt asking whether to allow the app to access your camera (iOS) or to allow the app to take pictures and record video (Android).  Please select Allow so the authenticator app can access your camera to take a picture of the QR code in the next step.
  9. Scan the QR code provided on the screen which will add the account to the device automatically. Once this is complete, click Next on your computer.
  10. From your phone, click Approve to allow your account to be added to the Authenticator app.

Tip: If you are not able to scan the QR code or are denied access, you can still receive approval by providing the One-time password code found in the Microsoft Authenticator app.

Method 2: Phone

While it is not required, it is highly recommended you add additional options such as Phone or Security Questions.

To add your phone, you would do the following:

  1. From the Security info page, click Add Method then select Phone.
  2. Enter your cell phone number and choose the option to either Text me a Code or Call Me.
    • If you choose the text option, you will receive a message on your phone with the code you need to enter.
    • If you choose the call option, you will get a phone call for verification. Please follow the prompts to continue.

Method 3: Security Questions

You will need to select five questions and provide answers to those questions. For anyone who is using a department/shared account, you will also need to complete the above steps.  You may need to log on using a Private/Incognito browser if you are automatically signed in to your Office 365 account when you go to the portal. To add security questions, you would do the following:

  1. From the Security info page, click Add Method then select Security Questions.
  2. Select your questions from the drop-down list and provide the answers.

Please contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@goucher.edu if you experience a problem during setup.

How to Connect to a Remote Mac Lab Computer

Need to access an application that you don’t have installed on your own computer? Here’s a way you can still access the software you need off-campus.

Step 1: Download and Connect to Cisco AnyConnect VPN

You must first connect to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN network so you can connect to the Goucher network. Click the link below if you do not already have the VPN client installed on your personal computer.

Setting Up a VPN Connection

Step 2: Download and Install Teamviewer

In order to connect to a specific computer in a Mac lab, you will need to:

  1. Download and install a free remote client named Teamviewer.
  2. During installation, make sure default installation is selected and then select Personal/Non-commercial use in the How do you want to use Teamviewer? section.
  3. Then select Accept/Finish to complete the install. Windows users, select Yes if you have User Access Control enabled.

Note: you do not need to create an account to use this application.

Step 3: Connect to Mac

A special teamviewer ID is needed to connect to a specific computer. For a list of available Macs with their associated teamviewer ID click the link below:

Teamviewer IDs for DAC

Once you have selected the computer that you would like to connect to, copy the ID and enter it into the Partner ID field in the Control Remote Computer section of the Teamviewer client.

teamviewer window

Make sure that Remote control is selected, then click Connect. A window will appear requesting a password. Enter GoucherRemote2020 in the password field and click Log On to connect.

Enter Password

During Remote Session

Please keep the following items in mind while in your remote session:

  1. There is no sound available. This is not a limitation to Teamviewer. This is just how Macs handle remote sessions.
  2. Do not close the teamviewer client running on the Mac. If you close the client, then it will automatically end your session and no one else will be able to remote until we can re-launch it.
  3. Log in to Creative Cloud with your Adobe ID. If you need to use an Adobe product, you will need to log in to Creative Cloud first. If you do not have an Adobe ID, follow the link to create one.
  4. Deny others from logging in. Teamviewer allows more than one person to log on to the same computer. There is no way for us to prevent this. However, if you are logged in to a Mac and you receive a message that someone wants to connect, simply deny the request so you can continue your session.
  5. Log out of the Mac when done. You must log out of the Mac by going to the Apple menu at the top left of the screen and select Log Out from the menu. DO NOT select any other option. If you do not log out, then this prevents others from logging in after you. Then you can end the Teamviewer remote session.

If you experience any problems during setup or use of the Mac, please send an email to helpdesk@goucher.edu for assistance.

How to Connect to a Remote Windows Lab Computer

Step 1. Download and Connect to Cisco AnyConnect VPN

You must first connect to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN network before you will be able to remote into a lab computer. Click the link below if you do not already have the VPN client installed on your personal computer.

Setting Up a VPN Connection

Step 2. Install Microsoft Remote Desktop

Windows Users
The Remote Desktop Connection application is already installed on your computer. No other software is required.

MacOS users
Download and install Microsoft Remote Desktop client from the App Store. Then restart your computer.

Step 3. Connect to Lab Computer

Please note: We currently only have Windows computers available. Connection to the MacOS computers should be available soon. Go to Public Lab Software Inventory to see a list of available software.

    1. Go to the Remote Labs Page to select an available computer.
    2. Click the Connect button to the left of any available computer.
    3. A connect window will pop-up. Click the Download button.
    4. Open the file that was downloaded. You will be prompted with a security warning.
    5. When prompted to enter credentials, type gcadmin\ followed by your Goucher username in the User name field (For example, gcadmin\jadoe001). Mac users can just type their username. Then type in your Goucher password in the next field and then click Connect.
    6. You may be prompted with a security one like the ones below:
      Certificate Warning on MacOS
      Certificate Warning on WindowsClick Continue or Yes depending on which certificate warning your receive. Dismissing this message, in this case, is safe. So, you can connect to the computer.
    7. Once connected, the remote window will appear. Please be patient as it will take some time for you to log onto the computer and for the contents to load.
    8. Once you’re done with your remote session, Go to the Start menu and log out of the computer so it can become available for the next user. DO NOT select any other option.

     

    Tip for Mac Users: Once you are on the desktop of the lab computer, you may find that the screen is too large and you have to scroll around. Go to the menu at the top of the screen and go to Window –> Scaling to change that setting.

    If you experience any problems during connection, please contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@goucher.edu for assistance.

Horizon MyApps

What is Horizon MyApps?

Horizon MyApps is a site that allows Goucher users to run specialty software from their own computer through the Horizon Client application. The specialty software is actually running on a Goucher server although it appears to be running from your own computer.

Examples of student software:

  • SPSS
  • MATLAB
  • JMP
  • MS Office 2013 for Windows

Examples of faculty/staff software (dependent on department):

  • Image Now
  • PowerFAIDS
  • PowerCampus
  • Raiser’s Edge
  • MS Office 2013 for Windows

NOTE: If you are on a Mac, some programs you can only access through Horizon (examples include PowerCampus and Raisers Edge).

How do I run Horizon MyApps?

Before you begin…

  • On-campus users must be connected to GoucherWifi (not the GoucherGuest wifi signal)
  • Off-campus users must make a VPN connection to the Goucher network.

From your PC or Mac computer:

  1. Open a browser on your computer and go to https://myapps.goucher.edu.
  2. Download and install the “VMWare Horizon Client” on your computer.
  3. After downloading and installing the Horizon client, you are presented with this screen (below). Enter myapps.goucher.edu to continue.

4 . Log in with your Goucher username and password.

You only have to configure the Horizon Client Server on your computer once. The next time you launch this software, just double-click the MyApps.goucher.edu icon and enter your Goucher username and password to continue.

Saving and Accessing your Files

Students

For students doing work on the Horizon programs, you will need to access and save your work files through Darwin. The following linked article details the entire process:

Darwin and Horizon (Students)

Faculty/Staff

When working on Horizon, Faculty/Staff must save their files to the hard drive on their own computers. During the initial Horizon setup process, you may have been prompted to allow access to local and removable storage. If you selected it then, you can skip this section. Otherwise, below are instructions on how to set that up:

For Mac Users:

  1. Click VMware Horizon Client menu (make sure the Horizon application is currently selected, and it will appear in the top left corner)
  2. Select Preferences
  3. Click the Sharing tab
  4. Click the plus (+) sign
  5. Browse for the folder you would like to make available, then click “Add”.
  6. The new location will then appear in the Folder list. Close Preferences when done.

Then, once you try to open a file on any of the Horizon programs, look for [selected folder] on [computername] from the Look-In list.

For PC Users: 

  1. Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the window
  2. Select Sharing
  3. Click ADD
  4. Browse for the folder you would like to make available and click OK

When you save a file, the location you added above will appear as [selected folder] on [computername] in the folder list.

Can I run Horizon MyApps from my phone or tablet?

Yes! A “VMWARE Horizon Client” app is available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Is there anything I can do if I have technical problems?

If your computer freezes or you have other problems, try the following:

  1. From the VMWare Horizon Client window (not inside one of the software programs), click the gear icon in the upper right and select RESET.
  2. Uninstall the VMWare Horizon Client and reinstall it.
  3. For Sharing issues:
    • On Mac: Go to System Preferences. Under “Sharing” select “allow access to [username].”
    • On PC: Go to the gear in the top right corner of the window. Under “Sharing” select “allow access to [username].”

If neither of these steps corrects your problem, contact the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@goucher.edu for further assistance.

Darwin and Horizon (for Students)

For Goucher students that are doing work on programs accessed through Horizon (SPSS, MatLab, etc.), your work files will need to be stored and accessed on your user folder on Darwin (the network storage drive for students). Below are instructions for how to use Darwin and Horizon based on your computer’s operating system:

NOTE: These instructions were made for when you are on campus. If you are accessing from off-campus, you will need to be connected to your own wireless network and then connect to Goucher’s AnyConnect VPN.
