Leave Connect selected, and don't worry if a different user is selected. Your username and password will be used to route you to your own backend process.
Click on the 3 horizontal lines (Hamburger) in the top left to launch programs - the most common programs have been added under (Hamburger) > Start > Geneseo
To leave your session running for you to connect to later, close your browser tab or click (Hamburger) > Disconnect
To end your session, click (Hamburger) > Server > Shutdown Server - this does not shut down the entire server, and only ends your session.
Dragging and dropping a file from your local computer onto a connected session will upload it to your Downloads folder in your home directory if it exists, otherwise your home directory. The system will attempt to open uploaded files that it has a registered program for (PDFs and images should work)
You could also do (Hamburger) > Server > Upload file
Running xdg-open /path/to/some/remote/file in a remote terminal will download that file to your local computer through your browser.
Terminal, Files, Firefox, and many other apps take a few moments to launch in a fresh session - please be patient.
Xterm (under System Tools) launches instantly, but Terminal (Gnome) supports tabs, search, copy+paste, and looks nicer.
Windows has a built-in Remote Desktop Client; on macOS we recommend the official Microsoft Remote Desktop app from the Mac App Store.
The version of Windows on deeplearning2 limits users to 1 Remote Desktop Client user at a time - please log all the way out when you are done (not disconnect, which leaves your session running), so that others may use this machine remotely.
