Access to licensed electronic ressources from non-HZB computers

The problem solution

Please start a web browser on a computer in the HZB intranet and control this from your computer remotely. This is possible in different ways, for example:

  • connect with the MS Remote Desktop Connection program (Windows, Mac OS) or any other RDP program (e.g. /net/bin/sas-remmina for standard HZB Linux systems) to the HZB SAS farm rica.helmholtz-berlin.de with your HZB ID
  • connect with Internet Explorer to https://rica.helmholtz-berlin.de with your HZB ID
  • a web browser on a HZB Linux server (eg dinux6.basisit.de) with VNC via an SSH tunnel over display.helmholtz-berlin.de. All you need is a Java extension in your browser.
