Install Remote Desktop Software
Before you use SPSS for the first time, visit the App Store on your Mac to download and install the free "Microsoft Remote Desktop" app. You should only have to do this once.
- If you are off-campus, login to VPN via the SonicWALL Mobile Connect software.
- Double-click the SPSS22.rdp app that was provided to you.
- It can also be downloaded from storage.valpo.edu\Shared\RemoteApp\RDP files\SPSS22.rdp (from on-campus)
- If a "Verify Certificate" box pops up, click Continue.
On the RemoteApp login screen, enter your ValpoNet credentials, making sure to format your username this way: valpo\username
Click OK. SPSS should launch.
Logout When Finished
When you are finished, Quit (command-Q) the Remote Desktop app, then disconnect your VPN session by clicking the Disconnect button in the Mobile Connect app.
More specific information on how to use SPSS is available via our Lynda.com campus subscription. Login with your ValpoNet credentials.
