For UHN staff to connect to the research network remotely, please use VPN (Virtual Private Network) where possible:
- For more information about how to set this up, please go to the Working Remotely with VPN page (uhnresearch.ca -> NEWS -> Working Remotely with VPN)
- Note: When connecting through this method, you may lose connection to local resources such as your printer at home
Other helpful resources: RIS Helpdesk.
There are several ways to check in and access internal or protected resources from afar. Identify your options by choosing your identity. Are you staff or are you a collaborator (TASHN hospitals, vendors, etc.)? Browse below to choose your options and tools for accessing Windows desktops & servers, internal web applications and internal websites remotely.

Remote Access - Full Portal
This is the authenticator for the full remote access portal that serves both staff and our collaborators. You will need one-time passwords (OTPs) to proceed. One-time passwords are temporary passwords used only once to gain a window of opportunity to connect to resources that would otherwise be reachable only from inside the network. Once you use a password, it is no longer valid. Upon unlocking your portal, some resources may require additional credentials (desktops, web applications, etc.). If you do not already have one-time passwords, please call the Helpdesk at 416-581-7777 for assistance.
