For our C programing class students, we have a remote server called mevc1 with ms visual studio 2015 on it.
To connect to mevc1 use Remote Desktop Connection with your credentials.
You can use Show Options to connect local resources like drives.
Note: Always back up you files on S: (your network drive) and a local UFD drive. The profile and all its files (including the documents and desktop folders) are deleted once a day.
