You can make your own connections to the servers you have in Levich. Here is the instruction from Guacamole: https://guacamole.apache.org/doc/gug/configuring-guacamole.html#connection-configuration

It requires some work on your server:

  • For Windows, enable remote desktop, make connection with RDP on vmhub.
  • For Mac, enable screen sharing, make connection with VNC on vmhub.
  • For Linux, install and enable xrdp and ssh, make connection with RDP on vmhub.
