What is myJLab? : The Virtual Desktop Program for Homewood Students
myJLab provides access for Homewood-based students to a virtual desktop from their own desktop, laptop or other device (iPad and iPhone/smart phones) regardless of the operating system (Windows, Mac, etc.). Students can access nearly all of installed applications available in the Krieger Lab (HACLAB) without having to visit to one of the labs.
In order to access the virtual desktop from your own device, you will need to use a web browser (preferably IE) and install a simple web “plug-in” the first time you visit the site. Once the plug-in is installed, you will be able to log into the virtual desktop using your JHED credentials. The first login may take a minute or two to configure your personal settings, but each subsequent login should only take a few seconds. Additional details on accessing and using the virtual desktop interface (VDI) are included on this page.
Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ
If myJLab is not loading for you check what browser you are using.
IE8 is the best to use. When you get to the point where the browser needs to download the .ica file, IE automatically knows what to do with it. (With IE9, you need to add myJLab to trusted sites before it will launch)
Currently Firefox is not supported.
Chrome will work, you just have to click on the .ica file when it is downloaded (each time you launch myJlab).
If you are using a supported browser and cannot load myJLab, please close
your browser and relaunch it. On occasion you may encounter a temporary runtime
error that does not occur on a subsequent launch.
If you are still having difficulty please email email@example.com or check the myJLab - GetSatisfaction page for posts about similar issues or to submit a question yourself.
Provided you allowed for full access when you first launched myJLab, your
local drives are found under Network -> Client\
If on inital log in you opted to not give myJLab read/write access to your
computer, you can change that in the Desktop Viewer Preferences. This can be
found in the toolbar at the top of the virtual desktop.
