How do I set up VDI software on my personal computer?


To set up VDI software on your personal computer, please visit https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/tiscom/Services/SitePages_EISI/Virtual_Desktop.aspx

Please keep in mind that there are other options to log on to the Coast Guard network. Please start with number one, and then add capacity as needed:

  1. Offline or “off-network” telework: No bandwidth demand.
  2. BlackBerry (if assigned): Low bandwidth demand.
  3. Outlook Web Access (OWA): Low-Medium bandwidth demand. Minimize sending of large file attachments.
  4. CG Portal: Low-Medium bandwidth demand.
  5. Virtual Private Network (VPN): Medium-High bandwidth demand. New AnyConnect VPN software was loaded to most government laptops that were connected to the network prior to 15 March.
  6. Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI): Highest bandwidth demand.
