Desktop Portal Overview

The Desktop Portal provides access to virtual desktops. A Cirrus Dynamics (Cirrus) representative, or your Administrator will provide you with login credentials and the web address/URL to access the Desktop Portal.

The web address/URL will present you with the following login screen:


To log in, enter your username, password, and domain, then click Login.

If you have been assigned a default desktop and would like to by-pass the Portal screen (see below),  check the box above the Login button labeled "Automatically connect to default desktop". Note: If you subsequently need access to the "Power state" options uncheck this box.

Click the dropdown box at the lower right to view the portal in different languages. Your language selection should persist for subsequent portal sessions on the current computer.

Note: Your desktop portal language selection overrides any language selection made for the web browser, but it applies to the desktop portal only.
