There, you will be presented with two options: Install the VMware Client, or VMware Horizons HTML Access

VMWare Options: Install Client or HTML Access


Installing the VMware Horizon Client will install the application directly on your machine (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, or Chrome). HTML Access will open the Virtual Machine inside your browser window and requires no installation of software (so easy!). Either way you will need to complete Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to proceed. If you have not yet used MFA, you will need to Enroll in MFA before you can log in.

If you select HTML Access, you will be prompted to enter your VUNet ID and password. You will then be prompted to enter a 2-factor passcode. Most likely you will need to open the Duo application on your device to get a 6-digit passcode to enter. After entering the passcode, click 'Continue.' You will then need to click on 'Login' and you will be taken to a list of Virtual Machines available to you. If you do not see the Library workstations listed there, please let us know by sending an e-mail to ManagementLibrary@Vanderbilt.Edu.

Once you have installed the software and started up for the first time, you will need to click to add a "New Server." The server address you want to enter is Once you have entered the server address, click "Connect."
